Ol' Blue Eyes hit the cover off the ball and hammed it up at the 1948 "Out of This World" charity game between Sinatra's Swooners and Andy Russell's Sprouts at Gilmore Stadium in Los Angeles. Two of these photos are Type III action shots from that event credited to photographer Charles Rhodes. The other three photos appear to be Type II, hail from NYC's Central Park, and feature the star-studded team sponsored by restaurateur Toots Shor, including Sinatra, Rocky Marciano, Rocky Graziano, Ernie Kovacs, Nat Fleischer, Rod Steiger, Sid Caesar, Willie Pep and more. An embossed "PJP / BIG PAL" imprint appears in the lower-left corner. EX-MT condition.
