Legendary June 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This bowling-themed scrapbook was put together by a lanes enthusiast who included his score line sheets, favorite comic strips, and other memorabilia. About half of the 8" x 10-1/2" book's approximately 60 blank pages have been filled by this gentleman's keepsakes, and the prize -- a 7-1/4" x 9-1/4" black-and-white, studio photo of Gabby Hartnett in his Cubs uniform -- is glued inside the hardbound book's back cover. The photo has been signed and inscribed by the Hall of Famer in blue ballpoint "To my friend Merle - real people - what more can I say. My Best Always. Leo "Gabby" Hartnett," "8-9." The photo's presence is accounted-for by a Chicago Sun Bowling Achievement Award (mounted elsewhere in this fascinating book) that has also been signed by Hartnett (pencil, "Charles L. 'Gabby' Hartnett," "8") as the Proprietor of the Gabby Hartnett Recreation bowling alley. The book and its components range generally VG to EX in display quality. Full LOA from PSA DNA.
