Cat. #003251222: SHEL SILVERSTEIN

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Almost impossible to find 1974 first day cover, boldly signed in ballpoint pen by the beloved children's poet and artist who created The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic.  He famously shunned autograph collectors and apparently didn't care very much for kids!  As we understand it, this is one of a pair of first day covers signed on the same day, April 18, 1974, one of which was sold via RR Auction in September, 2014 for just short of $400.00.  In very good condition and superb for display.  This is just the fifth example of Shel Silverstein's autograph we know to have surfaced anywhere, all of which have sold in the $400 range, and the first we have ever offered.
