    Description

    1928 Babe Ruth, Gene Tunney & Bill Tilden Signed Seating List. A highly appropriate event for the three signatures located hereupon, this seating list for the World's Champions Dinner is signed by three of the greatest world champions of the era. "The Babe" was just coming off his 1927 Yankees World Series title with the New York Yankees, having hit .356 with 164 RBI and of course this was also his famous sixty home-run season. William "Bill" Tilden had already won seventeen various tournaments ranging from Wimbledon to the Davis Cup before this dinner and certainly earned his place on the cover.

    Meanwhile, Gene Tunney was reigning World Heavyweight Champion in both 1926-1927, and would repeat again in 1928. The cover has separated from the booklet but would be perfect to mat and frame, or encapsulate, on its own. One vertical crease and a stain at the bottom also show the age of this piece, but the autographs rank in at a strong 8.5/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
