Bob Gibson and Jim Bunning Autographs on a 1965 Bill Corum Memorial Dinner Program Cover.

Lot 176. Bob Gibson and Jim Bunning Autographs on a 1965 Bill Corum Memorial Dinner Program Cover. Corum was a New York newspaper columnist, radio and TV sportscaster. For nine years, he was president of Churchill Downs. During his term in 1925, he created the term “Run for the Roses.” The signatures of Gibson and Bunning are mint 9 and come with a 2007 Letter of Authenticity from JSA. In 17 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Gibson won 251 games, limited opposing teams to 2.91 runs per game and struck out their batters 3,117 times. He was an All-Star nine times, a Cy Young Award winner twice, the N.L. MVP in 1968 and a pitching star for a World Series winner twice. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981, his first year of eligibility. He died last year. Bunning was a nine-time All-Star who won 224 games, struck out 2,856 opponents, led the A.L. in wins in 1957, pitched (in 1964) the first perfect game in the N.L. since 1880 and hurled a no-hitter as well. When he retired, he was second on the MLB career strikeout list; he ranks 19th now. He is one of 10 pitchers to win at least 100 games in both the A.L. and N.L. In 1996, Bunning was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. After baseball, he represented Kentucky in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. He died in 2017. The program with the Gibson and Bunning autographs has a stain away from the signatures and otherwise is vg+ to ex. Both pitchers were honored at the dinner, conducted in New York by Sports Lodge No. 1840 of B’nai Brith. The program is signed inside by Don Schollander (nm-m 8 signature), winner of four Gold Medals in swimming at the 1964 Summer Olympics. He is a member of both the International Swimming and U.S. Olympic Halls of Fame. Winning Bid $25.
