Ed Cicotte - 1909 Philadelphia Caramel (E95)

Edward Victor Cicotte (1884-1969) was one of the great pitchers of his era, sporting a record of 209-148, but remains ineligible for Hall of Fame induction due to the 1919 Black Sox Scandal. Cicotte began his 1-year career with the Detroit Tigers in 1905, pitching 3 games to a 1-1 record. Cicotte returned to the Major Leagues in 1908 and played for the Boston Red Sox (1908-1912) until he was sold to the Chicago White Sox in 1912 where he finished his career. Though he had marginal success with the Tiger and Red Sox, Cicotte made his mark with the White Sox, leading the American League twice in wins (1917, 1919) and helped the Southsiders capture the 1917 World Series title over the New York Giants. Eddie also no-hit the St. Louis Browns April of the 1917 season. Cicotte again led the White Sox to the American League pennant in 1919 with 29 wins, 30 complete games in 306.2 innings pitched, all league leading stats. Amidst a contract dispute with White Sox owner, Charles Comiskey, Cicotte got caught up in the scheme to throw the 1919 World Series. Though all alleged participants in the Black Sox Scandal were acquitted in 1921, new commissioner Judge Kennesaw Mountain Landis banned the eight White Sox players from baseball. Eddie Cicotte’s career ended in 1920 after the lifetime ban. Cicotte ended his career with a 209-148 record including 249 complete games, 1,374 strikeouts and a lifetime 2.38 ERA.
