How's this for a golf foursome: baseball icon Babe Ruth, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby and former California Governor Culbert Olson. The four played together as part of a charity golf match in Sacramento in 1942. The scores were kept by Charles Robertson, a member of the golf club, who followed them on the course that day and obtained their autographs in the clubhouse after the match," said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Auctions at Heritage.The one-of-a-kind autographed scorecard will be sold by Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas on October 1
and is estimated to sell for $2,000 to $4,000.
The autographs are signed in pencil on the scorecard from the Sacramento Municipal Golf Course that was kept by Robertson and then his heirs for the past 67 years. The match play tournament scorecard only goes through the 16th hole. Hope and Crosby apparently had won at that point, and left to catch a flight to attend a charity dinner elsewhere that evening.
