Lot 9003

Very early contract, signed “Chas. A. Comiskey” and “Harry Leibold,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 14, November 1, 1920. American League player’s contract in which Nemo Leibold agrees to re-sign and play for the Chicago White Sox during the 1921 season, for a total salary of $4,000. Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by both Comiskey and Leibold. The reverse is signed by American League President Ban Johnson. In fine condition, with partial separations to folds. Nicknamed for the comic strip character Little Nemo, Leibold was a diminutive outfielder who played for the Cleveland Naps, the Boston Red Sox, and the Washington Senators. Most famously, however, is Leibold’s distinction as being one of just three Chicago White Sox regulars not accused in the Black Sox Scandal.

Estimate: $2500-$3000
