SIGNED - A book from the short-lived Coward-McCann Sports Library. This is the complete story of the Chicago White Sox, who after forty years of "penance and frustration" made 1959 a red-letter year by unseating the mighty New York Yankees and winning the American League pennant. The pen of a top-flight sports writer and a big selection of action pictures tell all about it, including: highlights of the 1959 season; intimate glimpses of the players, their families and the front office "brass; " an exciting behind-the-scenes account of the battle for team control that finally ended with the arrival of "Sport Shirt" Bill Veeck, and lots more. Very well illustrated in green cloth boards with light wear at the corners and spine ends. The jacket has chips at the corners and spine ends and some pen scribbles on the white inside at the back (doesn't show through) ; in a protective cover. Appendix includes World Series stats from 1906 and all-time White Sox roster. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall; Signed by Author(s)
