About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1948. Vintage oversize double weight photograph of actor and comedian Bob Hope about to score at a Dodgers benefit game, in 1948. With a newspaper clipping affixed to the verso, along with a date stamp reading SEP 5 1948 and the stamp of Graphic House Inc. crediting photographer Murray Garrett.

Although Hope was a fanatical sports fan, the comedian was best known for his involvement in his hometown team, the Cleveland Indians. In 1946 Hope became a part owner of the Indians alongside investor Bill Veeck, and in the ensuing years would often show up at spring training and games to perform comedy bits.

11 x 14 inches. Very Good plus, slightly wavy, with a tiny manuscript pencil annotation to the bottom right corner.
