1922 Eddie Cicotte Signed Handwritten Letter with Black Sox Content

1922 Eddie Cicotte Signed Handwritten Letter with Black Sox Content

He was one of the "Eight Men Out" for his participation in the 1919 Black Sox scandal. Eddie Cicotte wrote this two-page letter to "Stanny" - avid baseball fan and local games organizer Richard Standaert - and it has some wonderful content. The pitcher writes of a razor strap that was sent and "I haven't heard from Swede lately but I guess they are busy booking games." He also writes: "I have been working out the last few days but I can't get any catcher." The letter is written in 8/10 pencil, signed "E. Cicotte," initialed "E.V.C" and dated "4-9-22." It has typical mailing folds, otherwise it is in EX condition. Included in the lot are two telegrams relating to a barnstorming game that Standaert had organized, as well as several news clippings regarding the Black Sox and Eddie Cicotte's barnstorming along with other Chicago team members.
