Lot 139. “Commy: The Life Story of Charles A. Comiskey,” First Edition 1919 Hardback Book. Comiskey is in the Hall of Fame as a pioneer and executive. As a player, he revolutionized the way first base was played. Before Comiskey, first baseman stuck close to the bag; in contrast, he played well off the bag so that he could make plays in the field. As John McGraw, the New York Giants’ manager said, “He taught the first baseman how to play the position.” This copy of Comiskey’s biography, by G. W. Axelson, is vg without a dust jacket.
