Famous celebrities from the worlds of sports and movies join forces with this multi-signed ONL/Feeney baseball (EX-MT)  featuring (12) autographs. With the inclusion of legendary singer Nat King Cole ("7", d.1965), actor Edward G. Robinson ("8-9", d.1973) and heavyweight boxing champ Joe Louis ("7", d.1981), this ball was likely signed at an event surrounding the 1960 "Special Gala to Support Kennedy Campaign" television special, which featured the three named signers and a host of other top celebrities of the day. A tremendous souvenir from a pivotal 20th Century presidential campaign, this ball rates as an important piece of history. JFK is cited as the first president to win an election thanks to his TV presence and the star-studded event surely put him in a positive light. Other notables are: actor and pro baseball/basketball player Chuck Connors ("7-8", d.1992), actor/dancer Donald O'Connor ("6", d.2003), actor Danny Thomas ("8", d.1991), actor Ricardo Montalban ("9", d.2009), actor James Garner ("7", d.2014) and actor Dale Robertson ("8", d.2013). Also present are: actor/minor league baseball player Michael Dante ("7"), actor John Bromfield ("8-9", d.2005) and actor Bob Turnbull ("8-9"). Full photo LOA from JSA.
