"Black Sox" players are found not guilty...

Item # 682732

August 03, 1921

LEOMINSTER DAILY ENTERPRISE, Massachusetts, August 3, 1921 

* Chicago "Black Sox" White Sox
* 1919 World Series of baseball scandal
* Not guilty verdict - "Shoeless" Joe Jackson

This has one of the better headlines to be had for this infamous event in baseball history: the not guilty verdict in the "Black Sox" scandal of the 1919 Major League Baseball World Series.
The four column headline announces: "WHITE SOX PLAYERS FOUND NOT GUILTY OF CONSPIRACY". This trial involved seven players of the Chicago White Sox accused of throwing the Series.
Among the subheads are: "Jury Verdict Reached in Two Hours & 47 Minutes--Only One Ballot Was Taken--Judge Friend Declares It a Just Decision--Accused Men Go Wild With Joy--Spectators Join in--Pandemonium Reigned".
Complete in eight pages, toning at the margins, a bit off minor margin chipping, should be handled with care.
A nice, displayable account of one of the more infamous events in baseball history.
