Description

Bowing out of the Bogie Busters

Bogie Busters’ Golf Tournament RSVP card, 5.5 x 4.25, postmarked February 22, 1999, filled in by Armstrong on the “Name” line in block letters, “Neil Armstrong,” with Armstrong adding a short note to his friend Cy Laughter along the bottom reading: “Cy-Sorry, I must be out of the country at that time. Have a great one!” Some light postal marks showing through under signature, and first line of note, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned 5 x 7 photo of Armstrong waiting to tee off at a tournament. Bogie Busters was a two-day celebrity golf outing held annually between 1967 and 1991 in Dayton, Ohio, sponsored by the Laughter Corporation and headed by Cy Laughter. Any type of Armstrong handwritten material is scarce and highly-prized by space collectors. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
