This week we are offering an extraordinary 1887 N172 Old Judge Charles "Commy" Comiskey baseball cards graded a PSA 4.  This exemplar is highlighted by the stunningly incredible centering. Comiskey was an American Major League Baseball player, manager, team owner and a key person in the formation of the American League. He was also founding owner of the Chicago White Sox. Comiskey Park, the White Sox' storied baseball stadium, was built under his guidance and named for him. The son of Illinois politician John Comiskey, Charles started his playing career as a pitcher, and moved to first base after developing arm trouble. He entered the American Association in 1882 with the St. Louis Brown Stockings and managed the team during parts of its first seasons, taking over full-time in 1885, leading the Browns to four consecutive American Association Championships and a close second in 1889. He played and managed for the Chicago Pirates in the Players' League (1890), the Browns again (1891), and the Cincinnati Reds in the National League (1892-94). 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. Do not miss out on this rare opportunity to add this beautiful Old Judge card to your collection!
