Here's a Nice Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz

I got this in a lot with several other items. The lot came with a PSA/DNA auction house LOA. When I got the lot, I was surprised to see that these two signatures have also been authenticated by GAI.



The signatures are from early 1941, about three months after they were married. The provenance is excellent. It belonged to a boy who collected autographs. His encounters with various celebrities was featured in his hometown newpaper and a clipping of the article accompanied the autograph book. Some of the other signatures include: Gene Krupa, Frances Langford, Jon Hall, Eddie Bracken, and Rosemary Lane.

PSA had misidentified the Jon Hall as Lou Hall and listed Rosemary Lane as "one other", in the auction house LOA, probably because they couldn't identify it. Luckily I was able to find exemplars of those two signatures, so I was able to validate the signatures.
