    STILL, THE CHICAGO WHITE SOX. As the caption benignly reports, these pictured baseballers constituted the core of the then reigning American League champion Chicago White Sox.  The date was August 7, 1920 when this photo feature appeared in the New York tabloid, Police Gazette.  In that issue, there's no article or other reference to the team -- all seemed well.  As the ink dried, neither the public nor baseball's authorities were aware that, within a month, baseball would be rocked to its foundation -- teetering on the edge of extinction.  There were eight conspirators in all, and seven of these pictured eleven were among them.  (Seldom-used Fred McMullin wasn't included in this photo report.)  However, the principals - Joe Jackson, Chick Gandil, Lefty Williams, Hap Felsch, Swede Risberg, Eddie Cicotte and Buck Weaver - are all pictured here.  Of course, some of the innocents are depicted here also - eventual Hall of Famers Eddie Collins, Ray Schalk and Red Faber as well as Shano Collins.  The full-page photo composite occupies page 12 of the complete 16-page paper offered here.  It's very fragile at the binding staples, but remains in otherwise EX+ condition with no creases or other blemishes on that profound page 12.  Additional shipping cost may apply.
