In his message to the N.L. President, Pale Hose president Comiskey asserts his hearty support of Commissioner Landis for a new term of office—an endorsement which is even more historically interesting because of the past connection between Comiskey and Landis to the Black Sox scandal's resolution. The crisp, clean and beautiful piece (8-1/2 x 11", EX-MT) features a glistening, gold-embossed "WORLD'S CHAMPION WHITE SOX" logo, above the date April 7, 1926. President Comiskey's black-ink "9" signature reflects the style of his advancing years. The text appears on our website. Full LOA from JSA.

Comiskey's typewritten text reads, in part, "I am delighted every one in your organization is in full accord with the Commissioner and feel that every one in Baseball should be unanimously for him, as any one with the welfare of Baseball at heart should want not to conceal the fact or be backward in going on record for his endorsement. During his term of commissionership, he has been a wonderful asset to our National Game and has done everything he possibly could to keep Baseball clean and on a high plane. He has accomplished this in the face of a great many handicaps and obsticles [sic] that have been thrown in his way constantly by some in Baseball, who porfess [sic] to have the best interests of Baseball at heart, but who are fooling no one but themselves, as the public and every one else knows the true situation."
