Humorous vintage matte-finish 11 x 14 photo of Shepard and Gus Grissom imitating Bob Hope and Bing Crosby dressed in matching striped jackets, and with canes and straw hats in hand, affixed to a 13.5 x 17 mount, signed and inscribed on the mount in black ink, “To Rhae Adams with many thanks for the loan of the suits—Alan B. Shepard, Jr.,” and also bearing a secretarial signature of Gus Grissom. In fine condition. While preparing for his Mercury flight, Shepard received a signed photo from Bob Hope and Bing Crosby dressed in space suits while filming The Road to Hong Kong, stating they “were ready.” In response, the astronauts posed for this photo and sent one to Hope and Crosby. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
