    1938 Babe Ruth, Joe McCarthy, Robert Ripley & Others Signed Friars Club Program. This spectacular program hails from a Testimonial Dinner for Bill Corum, sports columnist for the New York Evening Journal. Those in attendance for the 1938 event read like a "Who's Who in New York" list. Just a few of the signatures inside this 5.25x7.25" folded program are: Babe Ruth, Joe McCarthy, Joe DiMaggio, Frank Frisch, Ford Frick, Robert Ripley (of "Ripley's Believe it or Not" fame), Eddie Rickenbacker, Al Schacht, Jimmy Braddock and countless others. Twenty-eight signatures, all in pencil, average bold 9-10 quality. A couple of creases and slight, small tears at the edges of the spine do not detract from the aesthetics of this wonderful piece. It's not often you get Ruth and Ripley's artistic signatures on the same item! Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
