Paul Fraser Collectibles, Thursday 19 July 2012
A remarkable collection of 1,300 vintage Hollywood autographs sold as top lot in an online sale which closed July 18.
The wonderful selection from Hollywood's golden age was spread across 25 albums and around 300 loose pages. Highlighting the collection was an incredibly rare signature by a 14 year old Judy Garland from 1937, two years before the Wizard of Oz was released.
Other signers included Audrey Hepburn, Marlon Brando, John Wayne and a pencil autograph from Elvis Presley. It offered bidders a fantastic chance to own a collection that would take years to compile. It sold for $33,371, with a minimum bid of just $500 set by the auction house.
For those looking to obtain individual autographs, we have a brilliant range from Hollywood's golden age. This James Dean signed year book is one of the earliest autographs from the iconic star and is offered at a superb price.
Following on from the collection, an extremely rare letter from Battle of the Alamo hero William Barrett Travis, in which he writes to the future first president of Texas to discuss politics, sold for $25,640 against a minimum bid of $1,000.
Paul Fraser Collectibles is also offering an incredibly rare George Custer autograph - a wonderful keepsake from the doomed Battle of Little Bighorn.
We also have this excellent autographed document which inventor Thomas Edison has signed three times as president of the Edison Spanish Colonial Light Company.
