First we have Joe Gedeon. Often referred to as the “Ninth Man Out” Joe was banned permanently for "having guilty knowledge" of the World Series fix. Joe Gedeon is pictured on his 1915 Zeenut card.
Next we have Babe Borton. Babe came into the majors with the Chicago White Sox in 1912 hitting a very respectable .371 in 105 at-bats. The next year he was traded to the Yankees and ended his major league career in the in the Federal League. Following his major league stint Babe played in the Pacific Coast League playing for theVenice and Vernon teams. During the 1919 season, it was rumored that opposing players had been bribed to insure Vernon the pennant. Babe, along with Harl Maggart and Bill Rumler and pitchers Tom Seaton of Portland and Casey Smith of San Francisco were expelled from the league for suspected activities in the scandal. Rumler received a pardon from Organized Baseball in 1928, and finished out his career playing for the Hollywood Stars.
Babe Borton is pictured here on his 1919 Zeenut card.
Harl Maggert is pictured here on his 1917 Zeenut card.
Casey Smith is pictured here in his 1919 Zeenut card.

Up for sale is a rarely offered W600 Sporting Life Cabinet of John O'Brien. This card has been graded SGC 30 by Sports Guaranty, LLC. Downgraded from ex/mt appearance due to dime sized paper loss on reverse. It shows him as a member of the Boston American League team. While W600 cabinets were issued between 1902 and 1911 this card can be dated to 1903 as that was his only year with Boston. The card is crease free with only minor softening at the corners.
