Jackie Gleason’s Inverray Classic golf tournament played in Lauderhill, FL during the 1970s drew a host of top golfers, celebrities and athletes. Presented is a 2/19-25/73 program from this popular event signed by Mickey Mantle (“9”), actor Forrest Tucker (“9-10”) and pro golfer Tom Shaw (“9”). Handsomely framed and double-matted to overall dimensions of 13x16 this vintage period signed piece features “mod” ‘70s style graphics and lettering along with images of host Gleason and Jack Nicklaus. This item is accompanied by SGC COA and sticker.
Mantle’s signature appears on the cream area above the black and green color scheme framing the Gleason image. This upper region is minimally affected by stray print marks which do not detract from Mickey’s autograph. The Shaw autographed is signed to the upper right of the Gleason image over an section that was scratched prior to signing as evidenced by the fact that the scratches do not cause breaks in the signature. The Tucker autograph is top left of the Gleason image and is bold and clear.
