The pool champion inscribes and signs a promotional photograph for Crystal Leisure, Inc.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To - Marty/Best regards/From/Willie Mosconi". B/w, 8x10. Name imprinted in white at upper left background. Willie Mosconi (1913-1993), the son of a pool hall owner, was a child prodigy at pool-type sports. Considered one of the best players in the history of billiards, he had begun staging exhibitions at the age of six. 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". The author of several "how to" books on his sport, Mosconi is enshrined in the Italian American Hall of Fame. Diagonal crease at lower right background and corner. Minor surface creases (not evident head on). Fine condition.
