    "COMMY" A LIMITED EDITION. 1919 was, of course, a year of enormous upheaval in baseball. And the floodlights beamed singularly on the White Sox. Amid all that turbulence, the biography of Charles Comiskey appeared. Titled "Commy," it was written by G.W. Axelson and chronicles the life of the White Sox mogul. This copy of that work was one of a special edition of 200 books that Comiskey signed (#51). Bound in very soft leather (unique to these limited editions?), it is unprinted on the spine and covers. A few of the end pages are now loose, but the book remains firm. The cover and the bottom edge of some of the pages have incidental green stains, but overall, this rare volume is VG/EX. LOA Spence/Grad PSA DNA. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
