    Bob Hope: Personal Typed Letter Signed with Golf Tournament Invitation, Dated May 27, 1988, Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified and Encapsulated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty. A one page letter, 7.25" x 10.5", on his personal letterhead. It reads, in full: "Dear Neil, Hope you enjoyed the piece on the Birthday Show. It wasn't long but I knew they'd love seeing you the way the guys applauded for you. I think it's nice of you not to ask for any money so I'm taking the check that you'd normally get and sending it to the Hope House for wayward kids in Cincinnati and you'll probably be hearing from them. Anyway, I hope you're enjoying great health. Come on out and play in the golf tournament. I invited you last year and I imagine you were busy but try and get out and play in it -- I think you'd enjoy it at that time of the year. I want to thank you again." Signed "Bob" at close. Flattened mailing folds, otherwise excellent. Sealed in a numbered archival holder. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
