Envelope from Commissioner Landis to Shoeless Joe Jackson, regarding a forged letter requesting his reinstatement

Registered mailing envelope from the “Baseball Office of the Commissioner,” 6.25 x 3.75, sent by Kennesaw Mountain Landis to Shoeless Joe Jackson, addressed in type to “Mr. Joe Jackson, Bastrop, La.,” postmarked on June 21, 1923, in Chicago, Illinois. In very good condition, with toning, edge tears, and paper loss.

Accompanied by copies of the original letter sent by Landis to Jackson, dated June 20 1923, in full: “I have received a letter dated June 12, purporting to come from you and to bear your signature. In substance, it is an application for reinstatement. The signature thereto does not appear to be yours; therefore, beyond this communication to you, no action will be taken thereon.”
