Burns wasn't on the Black Sox but used his connections with baseball as part of the group that put the fix in. He then got immunity for his testimony. His testimony is what passes as fact today, but Burns had a reputation for being lazy, dishonest and self-centered. OC to the bottom left with light to moderate corner wear and a light crescent shaped crease around his shoulder on the right side.
