    Description

    1947 Duffy Lewis Testimonial Dinner Program Signed by Collins, Speaker, More. He won three World Championships with the Boston Red Sox (1912, 1915, 1916), joining Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper in one of the greatest outfielding triumvirates in the history of the sport. The thirty-year anniversary of Duffy Lewis' departure from Fenway was marked with a testimonial dinner attended by an exciting array of famed figures from the sporting world and beyond, many of whom have autographed this banquet program.

    Lewis boldly signs the cover under his photographic image, while the closing pages bear the signatures of Hall of Famers Bill Klem, Billy Southworth, Harry Hooper, Joe Cronin, Bill McGowan, Eddie Collins, Tris Speaker and Ford Frick. Also signing is former Boston mayor John Fitzgerald, grandfather of President John F. Kennedy. All signatures rate 9/10 or better, and program itself survives in strong EX-MT condition. A letter of provenance from the grandson of the former owner of the Boston/Milwaukee Braves states that this had been his grandfather's keepsake of the evening. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
