Inscribed Photograph Signed: "Best of Everything/Betty & Eddie Sousa/Sincerely/Carmen/Salvino" in black felt tip. B/w. 8x10¼. Legendary professional bowler Carmen Salvino (b. 1933) captured his first PBA Tour title in 1961 and won the PBA National Championship the following year. In 1963, he cashed in in every tournament he bowled, a feat equalled only by Dick Weber (1962) and Mark Roth (1978). Over the course of his career, Salvino would win 17 tour titles (his last was the Miller High Life Classic in January 1979) and bowl five sanctioned 300 games (Salvino bowled 35 perfect games at the Marigold in Chicago). Salvino, who became a U.S. Bowling Gold Level Instructor, was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame in 1975 and the American Bowling Congress Hall of Fame in 1979. In February 2002, the 70-year-old Salvino returned to competition in the PBA World Championship in Toledo, Ohio. Lightly creased at left and right blank margins. Minor surface creases and scratches (not evident head on). Otherwise, fine condition.
