Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommonly early black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch yellow album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s. In good condition. In good condition. Celebrated child actor Jackie Coogan, who was hand-selected by Charles Chaplin to appear in A Day's Pleasure (1919) and star in The Kid (1921), went on to star in Daddy (1923), Long Live the King (1923), Tom Sawyer (1930), and Huckleberry Finn (1931). After he had reached maturity, he found work more difficult to come by and made ends meet by appearing in bit parts and horror, sci-fi and western B-movies, most notably Cowboy G-Men (1952), Mesa of Lost Women (1953) and The Space Children (1958). It wasn't until the 1960s that Coogan would once again hit his stride, landing starring roles on two popular T.V. sitcoms: Sgt. Barnes on "McKeever and the Colonel" (1962-1963) and the bald, crazy-eyed, inexplicably electrical Uncle Fester on "The Addams Family" (1964-1966).
