Charlie Parker Autograph Pencil Signed 3x5 File Card
This 3" x 5" lined file card has been signed on the unlined side by Charlie Parker in pencil. The signature was obtained by veteran collector Stanley Kolowski, who obtained almost all of the signed cuts and file cards I offer. Stanley started collecting autographs in the 1940's, going to movie houses to obtain the signatures of the Marx Brothers, Abbott and Costello, the Three Stooges and others who were making personal appearances at area movie houses. He would paste the autographs in his scrapbook with paper paste, which has browned and gradually bled through to the front of the card after many decades (see card reverse in inset photo). He continued collecting until his death a few years ago. Signature has somewhat smudged from it's many years inside recipient's scrapbook. Some bending of card from removal. An extremely rare signature in any form.
