Spoke with Jeff Szynal the Sox Hall of Fame curator and historian last night. Jeff said when he took over in 1984 they did find some items and film pieces on the Sox that he wanted to transfer to (then) VHS tape for preserving.

However that material was stored in an area of the original Comiskey Park that wasn't good for preserving film and when they tried to transfer them the majority had deteriorated to the point where you just couldn't see anything.

Such a shame.

Wonder what that material originally was? Maybe season highlights from those great teams of the 1960's or perhaps stuff from 1972.
