Considered by many to be the darkest moment in the long history of professional baseball, the Cincinnati Reds won the 1919 World Series as eight members of the opposing Chicago White Sox allegedly took payments to intentionally lose the championship matchup. The featured item is a rare survivor of that infamous series, game-used in Game 5 of the 1919 World Series and autographed by the four umpires that officiated the game: Cy Rigler, Billy Evans, Ernie Quigley, and Dick Nallin. Written on the panel to the left of the stamp in an unknown hand is "Oct. 6th 1919, Cincinnati 5, Chicago 0" and "Ball used in game of Oct. 6th" on the opposite panel. Lefty Williams, one of the players named as a co-conspirator, took the loss for Chicago. Full LOA from JSA.
