The 1919 World Series was the scene of the crime, the culprits were eight members of the Chicago &ldquo;Black Sox&rdquo; and the crime was game fixing. Shoeless Joe Jackson and seven other members of the &ldquo;Black Sox&rdquo; were subsequently banned from baseball three years later and that ban still stands to this day. On this Anniversary, Lelands is privileged to offer a comprehensive collection of memorabilia related to the 1919 World Series teams including a Joe Jackson PSA certified signed document, 1919 World Series tickets, 1919 White Sox season pass, Type I photos, handwritten letters, autographs and much more.
