    Bob Hope - Historic Military Jacket This incredible and highly identifiable custom-embroidered official military issue jacket is featured in countless photos and movies. The garment features Bob Hope's name, and several hand-embroidered military patches, hand-sewn to the jacket's front. The jacket was worn by Hope for years during his many memorable performances while entertaining military troops overseas and at home. This is, without a doubt, the single most identifiable piece of Bob Hope wardrobe extant. Hope had several of these jackets over the years, this particular garment previously resided in the collection of Mark E. King, a well-know and highly respected military collection before being acquired recently by the consignor. Included with this epic piece of military and entertainment memorabilia are photos of Hope wearing the coat, as well as two signed letters of authenticity, one, from King, detailing the jacket's history. Cataloged and guaranteed by Startifacts.
