Description



Opened in 1935 directly across the street from Madison Square Garden, Jack Dempsey’s Restaurant became a renowned institution at which the famed proprietor mingled with patrons from all walks of life. The offered 1938 menu was autographed by the legendary fighter/host. The thick stock item features the fare for “Monday, January 24, 1938” on the inside (with the highest-priced entrée being a sirloin steak for $2.25). On the front cover, Dempsey’s black-ink fountain pen signature (inscribed “good luck”) projects (“9”) strength and clarity. The item presents nicely, though it is affected by small corner creases and a vertical fold that do not affect the potent autograph. Full photo LOA from James Spence Authentications.
