Description



After being honored at a Fenway pre-game ceremony earlier in the day, Grove was celebrated once more that evening at the Copley Plaza Hotel. This baseball-shaped event program (7-5/8 x 7-7/8") features two portrait illustrations by Bob Coyne; facsimile team signatures on the reverse; and a lengthy interior bio that begins, "Robert Moses LEFTY Grove / 'The Living Legend of Lonaconing' / It's not so much an athlete as an epic we're honoring this evening; not altogether a man who learned how to throw a baseball, but likewise one who knew how to live a life." Crisp EX-MT condition with its original red-string binding intact.
