Jackie Gleason C. 1950 Signed Photo 3.5 x 5

Hi All

I have a lovely item on offer apart from the usual. This is a vintage 3.5" x 5" real photo postcard of the Great One Jackie Gleason signed in nicely in blue fountain pen at the height of his career in about 1950-54. That is what makes this special to me - everyone has 1970's postcards and 8x10's signed in black felt tip or ballpoint - finding another vintage photo signed in fountain pen under $300 is not easy. Scans available of course! I have studied his signature for over 20 years. This is among the earlier examples I have seen - only earlier examples were some tax papers from the mid 1940's and a few 8x10's from the very late 40's. There is a correlation between his waist size and the size of the "j" in "Jackie"! The "J" Jackie uses here is very small and thin - nowhere near as flamboyant as it (and he) would soon become by 1954/55. By the late 1960's his signature had become what we generally see in black felt tip throughout the 1970's. By the late 80's, his last signature form was often "j-scribble g-scribble". Fine overall condition with nice eye appeal - minor creases and tape/glue remains on reverse. Buy vintage - because they don't make it anymore! As always, guaranteed to pass PSA/DNA for whatever that is worth. Contact magikbilly@yahoo.com $75 firm. Lists for a good bit more.
