New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1963. First Edition. Octavo (21.5cm); two toned cloth in black and green; titled in white on cover and white and lime green on the spine. dustjacket; 302pp.; illustrated with photographs. Fine. The dustjacket is unclipped (priced $4.95) with long tear along lower rear flap; nicks to the extremities; minor foxing to rear flap; large scuff from sticker removal on lower front panel, colored in green. Very Good.

Inspiration for the 1988 American sports drama film directed by John Sayles, starring Charlie Sheen and John Cusack.
"The most gigantic sporting swindle in the history of America!...Now after painstaking research, Eliot Asinof has reconstructed the entire scene by scene story of this fantastic scandal in which eight Chicago White Sox players arranged with the nation's leading gamblers to throw the series in Cincinnati." (from the dustjacket). .
