Alan Shepard FIRST Golf Ball He Ever Signed

Lot 0015 Details

Description
Alan Shepard, the first golf that he ever signed. Includes Beckett Authentication Services LOA A23822. Per the owner/consignor, "here is the story of the night I got Alan Shepard to autograph that ball for me. Here is the story of how I met Alan Shephard at the golf tournament he was playing in during the week I asked him to autograph a ball for me. Here is the story: My husband, now X, and I had a night club show that we took on the road for 10 years all over the U.S. One of our favorite gigs to return to year after year was to sing in Milwaukee, WI at a hotel that hosted all of the celebrities who played in an annual celebrity golf tournament in Milwaukee called the Vince Lombardi Open. The tournament was a fund raiser for the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. Many of the Green Bay Packer football stars such as Bart Star, Mrs. Lombardi herself, and other TV and world famous celebrities such as Alan Shepard played in the tournament year after year. One of our favorite celebrities was Alan Shephard and during the 3 years that we performed for all of the celebrities and people involved in the tournament, he became a friend to my husband and I. One night in the club where we were performing, we were on a break and talking with Alan. We asked him if he would sign a golf ball for us, since he was the first human to hit a golf ball on the Moon!!! He said sure so we produced a golf ball and marking pen to him. He said, 'I've never done this before - how do I write my name across all of these dimples on the ball?' My husband suggested we file down a flat spot on the ball with a nail file and he said great Â… so I ran up to our room in the Hotel, got my nail file, and brought it down to the lounge to Alan. He proceeded to file down a flat spot on the ball and write his name with the marking pen! Alan Shephard was a very special human being in my mind, and truly one of my heroes. The ball means a lot to me. If lot is absent of a condition report a condition report may be requested via email. Buyer must view photographs or scans to assist in determining condition and ask further questions if so desired.
