GENE SARAZEN (1902-1999) won two U.S. Opens, three PGA titles (including the first two in 1922 and 1923), one Masters and one British Open. He isone of only five golfers to win all four major golf tournaments. Sarazenwon the 1935 Masters with the most famous shot in golf history, holing his second shot from 220 yards out for a double eagle on Augusta's par 5 fifteenth hole. He later scored a hole-in-one in the British Open at the age of 71. In later years, Sarazen was a popular golf commentator. WILLIE MOSCONI (1913-1993) was considered one of the best players in the history of billiards. Playing straight pool, which is considered more difficult than today's tournament 9-ball, Mosconi was U.S. pool champion 18 times between 1941-1956. Mosconi, who once ran 526 balls in a row in an exhibition of straight pool, was the technical advisor for The Hustler, in which he had a cameo as a "stakes holder". PAUL ARIZIN (born in 1928) was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1978. During his college career at Villanova University (1946-1950), Arizin was a three-time All-Conference selection and he led the nation in scoring during his senior year. Arizin then played professionally for the Philadelphia Warriors (1950-1952 and 1954-1962), who won the NBA Championship in 1956. During his NBA career, which was interrupted by service in Korea, Arizin was selected for the All NBA First Team in 1952 and 1956-1957, was a ten-time NBA All-Star (1951-1961) and was the NBA All-Star Game MVP in 1952. Arizin, who later played for the EBL's Camden Bullets (1962-1965), retired as the NBA's third leading scorer (16,266 points). Worthy of further research. Lightly creased, touching signatures. Tape remnant on verso at the of , show through nicks the "B" of Bill L. Light paper loss at 2 places at upper blank margin, faded at lower blank margin. Overall, fine condition.
