Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0001222: BUD ABBOTT & LOU COSTELLO

Rare and excellent pair of vintage uninscribed blue fountain pen signatures on a 4 x 6.25-inch portion of an off-white autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1940s. In fine condition, with slight surface impressions from a signature penned on the reverse side, and excellent for matting with a favorite photograph. Bud Abbott and fellow funnyman Lou Costello starred in a series of horror, fantasy and sci-fi-themed comedies at Universal, including Hold That Ghost (1941), Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948), Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff (1949), Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man (1951), Jack and the Beanstalk (1952), Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1953), Abbott and Costello Go to Mars (1953), and Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955).
