Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00323111: ARTIE SHAW

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Very scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1939 and decorated with a newspaper image. In good condition.  An introspective perfectionist and self-described "very difficult man," Artie Shaw was one of the top clarinetists of the Big Band era. In 1954, fed up with the demands and compromises of the commercial music business, he walked away from his career. A tough signer!
