Charles Comiskey Typed Letter Signed from 1913 on White Sox Letterhead JSA LOA

Charles Comiskey (D. 1931) was a Major League Baseball player, manager and team owner. He was a key person in the formation of the American League and later owned the Chicago White Sox. Comiskey Park, Chicago's storied baseball stadium, was built under his guidance and named for him. Comiskey's reputation was permanently tarnished by his team's involvement in the Black Sox Scandal, a conspiracy to "throw" the 1919 World Series. Despite popular allegations that his poor treatment of White Sox players fueled the conspiracy, Comiskey was inducted as an executive into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939.

Letter to George Mills reads, "Dear Sir: I am herewith enclosing check for the $50 receipt of same. Would also appreciate if you would send me the averages of the Eastern Association showing the work Daly has done up to date. From the reports I had on this man, he appears to be the makings of a good hitting catcher. With kindest personal regards, I am, Sincerely yours, Charles Comiskey. PS: Keep me posted as to your movements."
