Odds and Ends: Tennis, Ring, Autograph

 Ah, the young Mr. Montgomery dressed in proper attire for a game of tennis.  Life is good, one big smile.   I'm guessing it was taken at his 2815 N. Beachwood Dr. home.  This is a trading card, in the 1-1/2" to 2-1/2" range.  Excellent photograph.  

This is Bob's signet ring with the family crest.  Finally found a photograph clear enough to enable me to blow up the ring a gazillion times to be able to see the crest.  Nice ring.  

Back in the 1960s, 1970s, fans could send a photograph and return envelope to a star, ask for an autograph and actually have it returned.  This one was even displayed, those rust spots in the corners are from thumbtacks.  Bob's signature is on his arm.  It's an older Bob signature, probably from the 1970s.  I should really kick myself for not taking the initiative to contact a star or two.  Ouch.
