This photograph shows sports heroes who loaned their support to a World War II bond drive at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. Included are Walter “Red” Barber, Clem McCarthy, Nat Holman, Earl Sande, Carl Hubbell, Ensign Sid Luckman, Ensign Greg Rice, Eleanor Holm, Lt. Commander Jack Dempsey, Sgt. Barney Ross, Gene Sarazen, Alice Marble, and Babe Ruth.

The original caption reads: Sports Stars Shine for War Bond Drive. New York…In what was probably the greatest aggregation of sports stars appearing on one stage in this array from sportsdom as they “shined” tonight at the “Stars for Victory” show at the Waldorf-Astoria to stimulate sales of bonds in the climax of the Fourth War Loan Drive. …In front holding ball is Sam Taub and to his right Stan Lomax.
