Presented is a grouping of thirty-one autographed items from notable actors, musicians and TV personalities. A main feature of this collection is a signed Louis Armstrong white handkerchief that contains the trumpeters initials pressed with gold paper. It is presumed that this piece was a personal item that Armstrong may have used to wipe his spit valve when playing. Other important musician pieces include the signed framed photos of Duke Ellington 6-1/4 x 8-1/4 (d.1974, 6), Benny Goodman 11-1/2 x 9-1/4 (d.1986, cut, 8) and a Glen Miller 11-1/2 x 9-1/4 (d.1944, cut, 8). The majority of this collection is made up of signed flats and 8x10 photographs from actors and TV personalities, including a Time magazine cover signed by Ed Sullivan (d.1974, 7, Hi Mort!). A signed cast photo from the 1950s sitcom The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet also accentuates this offering. This 6-1/2 x 8-1/2 photo includes David, Harriet, Ozzie (d.1975) and Ricky Nelson (d.1985) (all 8 to 9, For Delone and Paul Good Luck, only Ozzie with signed last name).
