Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0019913111: CHARLIE PARKER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Ultra-rare signature in black fountain pen on an off-white slip pf paper,probably a trimmed-down album page, measuring 3-1/8 x 1-7/8 inches.  In fine condition, with mounting remnants on the verso, and ideal for matting with a favorite photograph.  The legendary saxophonist, who pioneered the bebop style of jazz, died of pneumonia and a bleeding ulcer in 1955, possibly related to his long-time heroin addiction.  He was only 35.  This is the first authentic example of his autograph we've ever offered.
