Bob Hope, ( May 29, 1903 – July 27, 2003) was an American comedian, actor, singer, dancer, athlete, author, and political humorist.  Bob Hope was television’s top comedian  and didn’t retire until he was almost 100. His career spanned nearly 80 years. In addition to being a star on radio and in the movies, Hope hosted the Academy Awards broadcast a record 19 times and starred in hundreds of NBC specials from 1959-1996. 

After obtaining Milton Berle’s Butt, next went after something from Bob Hope for the Shrine of Comedy.  Bob made a point to tease every president from Roosevelt to Clinton and played golf with most of them.  So what better prize for the shrine… Bob Hope’s balls! (or at least one ball).
