Black Sox items to be auctioned

Unique items that include the big names from the 1919 Chicago Black Sox scandal will hit the auction block on Monday.

Goldin Auctions has three items from one of the most famous gambling scandals of all time.

The most rare item is a ball signed by six of the eight players charged with throwing the series, including "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, who signed the sweet spot. The ball has an estimated price of $100,000.

The auction company is also putting a payroll check of $476.25 up for bid. It is one of, if not the last, paychecks written from White Sox owner Charles Comiskey to pitcher Eddie Cicotte, who famously confirmed his part of the plot. He threw at the first batter that faced him the first game.

The third item is a ticket from that game, only one of which has been sold in the last decade (for $3,525).

Cicotte and Jackson both confessed to a grand jury in 1920, but later recanted those confessions and were acquitted by the others of all the charges a year later.

Despite this, all eight players were permanently banned from baseball from commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis.

The auction closes on Feb. 7.
