    1970's Bing Crosby Worn Golf Shirt Sourced from His Wife. To the world, Bing Crosby was known for his ability to entertain a crowd, but he also had his hand in golf until the very last day of his life. Crosby actually suffered a fatal heart attack on the links following a round with Manuel Pinero in Madrid.

    This "Charvet" shirt was worn by Crosby when he was enjoying time away from the entertainment world. "Bing Crosby" is applied to a sticker (partially disengaged) and just above the manufacturer's tag in the collar. "BC" is embroidered on the chest. The same consignor owned Crosby's putter which is also featured in this auction. A letter from Crosby's widow, on Corinthian Studios stationery, states: "Dear Mr. Allen, Thank you for your letter and photos it was most interesting. Here is one of Bing's shirts that he wore golfing; I hope this will be suitable for you - he loved it dearly. I thought you might want your photos back. Kathryn Crosby." Letter of provenance from Kathryn Crosby.
