Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00198345: BETTIE PAGE

Highly rare and especially desirable portrait from her Irving Klaw days, shown clad in a bikini, stockings and high heels, and holding a whip at her side, boldly signed in black felt-tip pen during a private signing in the 1990s-- one of the very few the isolative Page permitted in the years just prior to her death. In good condition, with a JSA third-party authentication service sticker applied to the lower right-hand corner and accompanied by its corresponding certificate. Iconic, raven-haired pin-up model Bettie Page, who battled mental illness throughout her lifetime, was a consummate recluse in her later years, but did occasionally provide autographs to personal friends; authors and interviewers; members of her fan club; and autograph dealerships offering her fair prices. While forgeries abound, this one comes from a rock solid provenance and is the real deal.
