About This Item

New York: Office of the Commissioner Major League Baseball, 1989. Softcover. Near Fine. First edition. Quarto. Plastic comb-bound photo-duplicated pages with a clear plastic front cover and cardstock rear cover. 225pp. Handwritten copyright notice on the title leaf. A small chip and tear on the plastic front cover, page edges a bit thumbed, a near fine copy. The damning report prepared by attorney John Dowd for the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, which resulted in Pete Rose's lifetime ban from the league. This copy Inscribed by the Commissioner of Major League Baseball to a young attorney in Dowd's office: "To -, Thank you for all your help - Bart Giamatti." Purchased by us directly from the attorney, who reports that when Giamatti received the final report at Dowd's office, he offered to sign autographs for the staff, most of whom proffered baseballs. Our friend offered the report instead. Apparently later generation copies occasionally appear in the sports world, Signed by either Dowd or Rose, but we have not heard of another copy Signed by Giamatti, who died less than four months later, at the age of 51, eight days after his final decision to ban Rose. Rare thus.
