I am not a baseball follower from that era but do recognize most of these names,
The Menu is dated Tuesday June 5, 1951,
Just the menu is a piece of history itself, Include in it the autographs of the movie stars it is more valuable, now add in all the hall of famers that were there on one special night and you have a unique collectible,
More info can be found at
And of Toots himself at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toots_Shor
I was enthralled when reading about some of his exploits.
The photo graced the back of the menu at Toot’s restaurant for many years, and a terrific photo of a collection of baseball greats as they posed at Toots Shor's New York City restaurant with the proprietor. This was probably taken before they departed for the 1951 Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Cooperstown. The induction was on July 23, 1951.
There is an inscription near the date on the menu that says Pa and I John ??? ( looks like late)got them, (or they got there late and not all the HOF’s were still there) according to the previous owner of the menu his dad and he were at the restaurant and his “Pa” got the three movie stars autographs while they were there and only his son ( the owner of the menu) was allowed to approach the Hall of Famers for autographs,
Toots was famous for letting the famous people there not be bothered by autograph hounds so this day was special for all of them,
Someone wrote on the front “there was all famous people there – great times great food” on the front, to memorialize that day they were there.
Please check out the pictures as they are a part of the description also.
