Other ephemera within the address book includes various business cards, five horse betting OTB stubs, an Amtrak ticket from NYP to WAS and an obituary for philanthropist Reuben Paul Rosen.

Jimmy Snyder was among the most colorful and charismatic personalities in the world of sportscasting and sports betting. Known best for his work on The NFL Today predicting game scores during the 1970s and 80s, he was instrumental in helping bring gambling into the athletic world’s mainstream. This compelling piece of Americana provides fascinating insight into the personal life of not only Jimmy the Greek, but also a number of 20th-century pop culture legends.
