Photocopy of Shoeless Joe Jackson’s Black Sox Scandal 1920 Grand Jury Testimony.

Lot 211. Photocopy of Shoeless Joe Jackson’s Black Sox Scandal 1920 Grand Jury Testimony. Jackson and Eddie Cicotte were the best of the eight Chicago White Sox players prosecuted in a Chicago court in 1921 for accepting payments from gamblers to lose the 1919 Baseball World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. Ten days after the trial began and following three hours of deliberations, a jury found all eight defendants not guilty. Nevertheless, they subsequently were permanently banned from baseball and the Hall of Fame by Kenesaw Mountain Landis, MLB’s first commissioner. On its1998 list of Baseball’s 100 Greatest Players, “The Sporting News” ranked Jackson 35th. His MLB career ended at the age of 32 after 13 seasons. Before the 1921 trial, Jackson testified on Sept. 28, 1920, “before the Grand Jury of Cook County in the matter of the alleged baseball scandal related to the 1919 World Series.” His testimony is presented in 27 photocopied pages originally from E. A. Eulass & Co. of Chicago, Court and General Stenographic Reporting. Some text is light with individual letters that are incomplete; all of Jackson’s testimony is readable. Winning Bid $25.
