1929 New York Evening Graphic’s Fourth Annual All Sports Dinner Program.

Lot 118. 1929 New York Evening Graphic’s Fourth Annual All Sports Dinner Program. A tabloid, the Evening Graphic held an annual banquet to honor the person “who, during the past year, has contributed most to the cause of clean sport.” Gene Tunney won the award in 1928. The program for the May 21, 1929 event at the Hotel Astor has a cover with black and white photos of athletes superimposed on gold stars. Among them are: Babe Ruth, John McGraw, Jack Dempsey, Max Schmeling, Miller Huggins and Wilbert Robinson. Others listed as scheduled to attend are Lou Gehrig, Walter Johnson, Mel Ott, Edd Roush, Clark Griffith, Jacob Ruppert, Tony Lazzerri, Bill Terry, Travis Jackson, Babe Herman, Dazzy Vance and Waite Hoyt. Interestingly, the name Ed Sullivan appears in the program. Sullivan, who later became know as the host of a television variety show, was a sportswriter for the newspaper 1927-29. What a night it must have been! G-vg program with cover and four inside pages presents very nicely.
Minimum Bid $200.
