Listing Details

A great piece, offered is a 15 x 26 presentation scroll from a 50th anniversary dinner in 1941 hosted by the Baseball Writers Association of America celebrating the Harry M. Stevens company and specifically the hot dog's relationship with baseball! The reads in part, The Baseball Writers of New York and their guests here...making obeisance to their oblong of succulence, the Hot Dog, which for a half century has been the backbone of our Great National Pastime. Dated January 14, 1941, this remarkable document is signed by over 100 dignitaries, not least Mr. Babe Ruth, and seven other HOFers: Bill Klem (rare, D'51), Ford Frick, Ed Barrow, Joe McCarthy, Larry MacPhail, Frankie Frisch and George Weiss. Other notables from the sports world include Red Barber, Paul Krichell, Harry M. Stevens, Horace Stoneham and Al Schacht. Readers of baseball writing from this period will recognize the signatures of Frank Graham, Tom Meany, Dan Daniel and Roscoe McGowen. This grand piece is presented in an enormous 46x36 framed display with the program from this dinner and a wonderful 19x10 panoramic photo from the dinner itself. The document itself has some general wear but still looks great. Baseball and hot dogs do of course go hand-in-hand, how great is to find something like this from 1941, a magical year in baseball history? The term museum quality is often abused and stretched to the point where it has no meaning, the offered lot more than earns that moniker, a grand one-of-a-kind piece pairing Babe Ruth with Harry M. Stevens and baseball and hot dogs all together! JSA LOA (full). JSA LOA (full).
