Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0015962212: GENE KRUPA

Scarce, uncommonly early 8x10-inch black and white publicity portrait by James Kriegsmann, boldly signed in black fountain pen in-person for a Massachusetts-based record shop owner in the 1930s. In fine condition for its age, with minor edgewear and a few light surface creases. Superb for framing and display. Energetic, flamboyant jazz drummer and bandleader Gene Krupa died of leukemia at the age of 64 and his autograph is elusive in any format.
