RARE “Eight Men Out” First-Edition Signed by Author Eliot Asinof (1963)
Out of stock
The mother of all modern signed sports-related first-editions. Even UN-signed copies of this 1963 first-edition are exceedingly rare and fervently sought by all collectors of the genre, and regularly command hundreds of dollars when, and if, available. “Eight Men Out” is the definitive volume detailing the drama and events surrounding “The Black Sox”, with insights into all the players and conspirators in baseball’s darkest chapter. With painstaking research, reknowned writer’s writer Eliot Asinof reconstructed the entire scene-by-scene story in which eight White Sox players arranged with the nation’s leading gamblers to throw the 1919 World Series to Cincinatti. It reads like a fictional spellbinder, but it’s all true. The author provides detailed sketches of all participants including pitchers Cicotte and Williams, the bewildered Joe Jackson, and likely-innocent Buck Weaver. It is a much darker and more far-reaching tale than presented in the award-winning film adaptation. This fabulous example of “Eight Men Out” is not only in amazing original condition, but is signed on the title page by author Asinof. The signature is mint with NO salutation. Includes rare colorful retail dust-jacket which shows some expected wear, but has done its job well. This volume literally constitutes the toughest and most treasured of all signed postwar sports books.
