    Paul Fraser Collectibles

    Pope John Paul II signed photograph

    £1,350.00

    • An excellent 7.3 x 11.5 inch signed photograph of Pope John Paul II

    Karol Józef Wojtyła was elected pope in 1978, taking the name John Paul II. He’s regarded as the most popular modern leader of the Catholic Church; celebrated for his conservativism, his work in ending communism and for building bridges with other faith leaders. He was made a saint in 2014.  

    This is a large and rare signed photograph of Pope John Paul II. He’s photographed along with fellow modern saint Mother Teresa.

    To the bottom left is the official Vatican City seal and the words Segretario Particolare di Sua Santita (“Special Secretary of the Supreme Pontiff”).

    The signature is exceptional, in deep blue ink, and stands out beautifully against the white robes. John Paul II signed few signatures and photographs are particularly uncommon. Here he signs his full Latin name "Ioannes Paulus II". 

    This piece is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from papal memorabilia expert Father Richard Kunst.

  • President George Washington Autographed Lottery Ticket

    Paul fraser collectibles

    President George Washington Autographed Lottery Ticket

    £18,000.00

    President George Washington Autographed Lottery Ticket

    For Sale: £18,000

    • Rare Mountain Road Lottery ticket signed by the young Colonel George Washington
    • One of only 25 known to exist
    • Excellent condition compared to many existing examples

    George Washington (1732-1799) was the first President of the United States and a respected leader who helped steer the course of history during the American Revolutionary War. He is looked upon fondly by Americans as one of the great Founding Fathers.

    At the time of signing, he had recently married Martha and moved with her to Mount Vernon near Alexandria, Virginia. Here, he became one of the richest men in Virginia, living the life of planter and politician.

    He expanded the Mount Vernon estate to an impressive size and began to show more interest in politics, as he presented the Virginia Assembly with legislation to the importation of goods from Great Britain.

    During this time, he was also an active leader of the Virginia social elite, inviting some of the most prominent figures to his estate. He lived the life of an aristocrat, enjoying fox hunting and dances, as well as the theatre, racing and cock fights.

    It is likely that his dislike of British rule began with the Mountain Road Lottery, as during preparations, the British banned all lotteries and his plans were drastically altered.

    Description

    This partially-printed page measures 2 7/8" x 1 3/8" and is in fine condition, with some light staining to the top and lower borders. The 1768 Mountain Road lottery ticket reads:

    1768. This Ticket [No. 173] shall entitle the Possessor to whatever Prize may happen to be drawn against it's [sic] Number in the Mountain Road Lottery

    The document is signed in brown/black ink, Go. Washington. Washington's autograph is particularly fine and demonstrates his flourishing, expressive penmanship.

    A fine filigree-style border design surrounds the text. Its intricate nature was possibly an attempt to avoid forgeries.

    History

    In 1768, a lottery was organised to fund road works in the area of Mountain Road. Improvements were needed in order to access the hot springs of Bath County, reputed to have healing properties. Washington acted as manager of the lottery. His signature on the tickets added credibility to the venture.

    However, the lottery was never completed, as the British banned all lotteries just as tickets were selling. Perhaps this is the very point at which Washington's dislike of British rule began.

    Rarity

    As Washington died over 200 years ago, it can be difficult to find examples of his signature that remain in good condition.

    Being the first President of the United States, and a very popular figure from American history, Washington memorabilia is much sought after by both museums and private collectors. The combination of the lack of good quality Washington memorabilia and the high demand for it makes his signature very rare.

    Comparables

    In 2009, a letter in which Washington argues in support of the adoption of the proposed new Constitution sold for $3,218,500. Another handwritten letter by the Founding Father sold for $834,500 back in 2009.

    As well as handwritten letters, examples of the President's autograph can also sell for significant sums. In 2010, Paul Fraser Collectibles sold an accounts document signed by Washington for £29,950.

    This is a rare opportunity to own a fine example of the first President of the United States' signature

    • Fantastic signed photograph from John and Jackie Kennedy in June 1962
    • Wonderful image depicting the President with his children, Caroline and John Jr
    • Given to the Kennedy family's nanny Maud Shaw for Christmas 1962

    John F. Kennedy was the President of the United States of America from 1961 until 1963 when he was tragically assassinated in Dallas, Texas. A charismatic leader, he is one of the most beloved presidents in US history, and his memorabilia is among the best selling of any former president.

    This 7½" x 9½" gelatine silver photo print shows President John F Kennedy with his children, Caroline and John Kennedy Jr, standing with Caroline's pony, Macaroni, on the terrace of The White House.

    Macaroni was a gift from Vice-President Lyndon Johnson, Kennedy's running mate for the 1960 election and President of the USA following Kennedy's death.

    This photograph was taken on 22nd June 1962. It is mounted and framed with a presentation inscription from Jackie Kennedy which is dated December 25, 1962. It reads:

    "For dear Miss Shaw - with love from us all - and the deepest appreciation as always".

    The autographs of Jackie Kennedy and John F. Kennedy have been signed in black ink. Caroline has added her autograph and some kisses. There is also an infant's scribble in ballpoint pen. Someone (probably Jackie) has noted that this scribble is from John Jr.

    This is a rare opportunity to own a photograph signed by all four Kennedy family members.

    In excellent condition, this photograph has impeccable provenance, originating from the collection of Maud Shaw, the Kennedy family nanny following Caroline's birth in 1957.

    An exceptional piece.

    • A Pretty Vacant single advert from a 1977 edition of the New Musical Express (NME) signed by the Sex Pistols
    • Click here to read more 

    The Sex Pistols formed in London in 1975 and originally featured Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock. Sid Vicious replaced Matlock in 1977. Their hugely influential debut album (Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols) set the tone for the punk explosion.

    In spite of their success, the Sex Pistols broke up less than a year later, following a disastrous US tour. Later that year, bassist Sid Vicious was arrested in New York for the murder of his girlfriend Nancy Spungen. He died of a heroin overdose in 1979.  

    This 10 x 6 inch full page advert for the Sex Pistols’ single Pretty Vacant is from a July 9, 1977 edition of the New Musical Express (NME). The full band has signed (Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Sid Vicious).

    The Sex Pistols only existed in their classic line-up for less than a year, making complete sets of signatures profoundly rare. This example could only have been signed in a seven month window between July 1977 and January 1978, when the band broke up. Cook has inscribed the page “At Virgin”, suggesting it may have been signed at the record label’s offices.

    Stan Laurel Autographed Letter

    • Letter signed by Stan Laurel - one half of comedy duo Laurel & Hardy
    • Written to news anchorman Glenn Laxton concerning Laurel's early career

    Stan Laurel (1890-1965) is one half of legendary comedy duo Laurel & Hardy, who were extremely popular from the 1920s to the 1940s, and featured in over 100 films. Silly, slender Laurel and rotund, pompous Hardy captured the hearts of millions through their original, slapstick comedy.

    This is a typed letter from Stan Laurel to cable television news anchorman, Glen Laxton, dated June 9, 1958. The letter, which features some hinges and archive folding, measures 11.8” x 8.4” and is accompanied by its original envelope which measures 6.75” x 3.75”

    Laxton first contacted Laurel at the age of 15 offering his support following Oliver Hardy’s death. Laurel answered almost immediately and Laxton claims that since then, he received over 50 letters from the comedian. Click here to read an interview with Glen Laxton regarding his correspondence with Laurel.

    This typed letter, written just 8 months after the death of Oliver Hardy reads:

    Dear Glenn:-

    Thanks yours 4th.inst.

    My start in Show Bus. was due to the fact, that I was born of a Theatrical Family, so I just grew up in the profession & followed my Father's footsteps. No, I never appeared in a Circus, altho my Father owned at one time in England, and also operated 6 legitimate theatres, beside authoring & producing several Dramatic shows in which he appeared with my Mother - my Brothers & Sister too were in the business. I came to this Country in 1910 in a Vaudeville show with Charlie Chaplin, it was a troupe called Fred Karno's London Comedians, we had a repertoire of sketches, the most well known was titled "A Night in An English Music Hall".

    Yes, Babe had a nice Tenor voice, he used to be a Boy Tenor in Minstrel Shows - Quartettes Etc. that deep voice you mention in "Way Out West" was not mine, a colored fellow sang while I just 'mouthed' the lyrics for comedy effect. I do'nt think seperate recordings were ever recorded of that particular number.

    The TV reception is much better at the new place, we can get all 7 channels. Well, think this covers your questions, so bye for now.

    Regards & best wishes Glenn.

    Sincerely:- Stan Laurel

    • Find out more about this piece here 

    Stephen Hawking was a young graduate studying physics at Cambridge University when he received a diagnosis of ALS, an incurable form of motor neurone disease. Doctors gave him two years to live.

    In the face of this progressive illness, he continued his work, producing several brilliant papers on black holes. In 1988 he published A Brief History of Time, one of the most successful popular science books ever printed. Hawking became a major celebrity – easily the most famous scientist of his generation. He died in 2018, aged 76. 

    By the 1970s, Stephen Hawking lost the ability to write by hand. As his fame grew following the publication of A Brief History of Time (1988), he began to receive requests for autographs.

    He started signing with a thumbprint dipped in ink and placed on the page.  

    This is a thumbprint signed copy of the Radio Times from January 2016, featuring a feature on Hawking’s upcoming Reith Lecture.

    The condition is good, with some creasing and scuffing to the cover and internal pages and a light crease to the autographed page. 

    The inscription alongside reads: “To Sandra, wherein much fun is to be had. This is right thumb print of professor Stephen Hawking witness by George Zhoeo and Steve Growett.” Dated 20/01/2016.

    The original owner received the signature via her brother-in-law, who was one of Hawking’s nursing staff. Included are several photographs of Hawking signing.

    • You can find out more about this item here 

    Steve McQueen (1930-1980) is among the most iconic actors of his generation. He brought a detached cool presence in a swathe of wildly popular roles, including Bullitt, The Great Escape and The Thomas Crowne Affair.

    McQueen dates this cheque December 12, 1958. He got his breakout role in September that year, starring as Josh Randall in TV western Wanted: Dead or Alive (1958-1961).

    The payee is Broadway Hollywood, a Los Angeles department store, while the sum is $12.42. That’s just over $100 in today’s money. Perhaps McQueen was treating himself to celebrate his recent success. It's housed in a large and visually impressive 22 x 33 inch frame, complete with barbed wire and a mounted photograph of McQueen. 

    McQueen’s autograph is unusually rare for an actor of his stature, as he hated signing for fans. The few signatures in circulation are typically found on cheques. 

    N.B The cheque can easily be removed from its frame should you wish to present it in an alternate fashion.

    The Beatles and their music need no introduction. As a result of their all-encompassing impact on popular music and culture, memorabilia from the band remains some of the most collectible and valuable on the market.

    These two pages from an autograph album feature the signatures of three of the Beatles in black fountain pen ink.

    The first page, dedicated to "Helen", is signed by three of the group: "love from The Beatles, Paul McCartney xxx"; "love from George Harrison xxxx"; "John Lennon xxx". Ringo Starr's name is handwritten at the bottom of the page, though not by his hand (possibly written by Paul McCartney).

    The second page, from the same album, is signed by John Lennon as "Benny Higgins (juggler)". The collector has neatly annotated the page with "John Lennon's joke".

    This unusual page is accompanied by a ticket stub for the Beatles' concert at the Princess Theatre, Torquay on Sunday August 18, 1963. The signatures were obtained on this date.

    The Torquay concert followed the group's release of their debut album, Please Please Me, in March 1963.

    The pages are in excellent condition, with only minor tears where they were removed from the autograph album. Sticky tape marks are present at the top and bottom of the ticket stub.

    The Beatles and their music need no introduction. As a result of their all-encompassing impact on popular music and culture, memorabilia from the band is some of the most valuable on the market.

    A Hard Day's Night, released on July 10, 1964, was the Beatles' third studio album. Accompanying the band's film of the same name, it went straight to Number One in the UK charts and stayed there for 21 weeks, spending a total of 38 weeks in the Top 20.

    A Hard Day's Night saw the Beatles move away from rock n roll covers and towards their classic sound. It holds a special place with fans, as it is the only Beatles album where all the songs were written by both John Lennon and Paul McCartney. 

    According to Autograph Magazine's census, there are just 125 known UK-release album covers signed by all four members of the Beatles.

    Signed copies of Please Please Me and With The Beatles account for approximately 95 of the 125 known examples. 

    That takes the total down to just 30.

    There are only 5 known examples of Meet the Beatles, with one example selling for $115,000 in 2006.

    As for signed copies of A Hard Day's Night, only 8-10 are known to exist.

    This is one of them...

    The signatures are in blue pen, each inscribed below the corresponding band member's photograph.

    The item is in fine condition, with some light wear to the edges.

    The album cover is to be sold framed alongside a black and white photo of the group, with a certificate of authenticity and lifetime moneyback guarantee of authenticity. 

    This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the rarest pieces of Beatles memorabilia.

    Victor Hugo is the author of some of the most celebrated works in French literature, including Les Miserables (1862) and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (1831).

    Victor Hugo signed this 10.7 x 8 inch document while in exile in Jersey in 1852-1855. A staunch republican, he left France when Napoleon III seized power in 1851. The paper is connected with a society of French refugees on the island and is signed by several other names. 

    Hugo left Jersey for Guernsey in 1855, where he wrote Les Miserables. 

    Victor Hugo’s autograph is by far the largest and most prominent. He signs in deep blue ink – the “g” of his second name extending in a breathtaking loop. It’s a spectacular specimen and rare in this colour (Hugo tended to use black ink).

    • A signed copy of Wallis Simpson's autobiography The Heart Has Its Reasons (1956)

    In 1934, Prince Edward was next in line to the throne of the British Isles. He had no patience for the arcane rules of court life and embarked on a romantic relationship with twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. Her status was a huge problem for the staunchly traditional royal family.

    When Edward became king of the United Kingdom in January 1936, he made it clear he planned to marry Wallis. When he was told this was impossible, he abdicated in December of that year. The couple lived out the rest of their lives in a whirl of parties and foreign travel.

    A fine signed copy of Wallis Simpson's autobiography The Heart Has Its Reasons.

    Wallis has inscribed “Wallis, Duchess of Windsor” on the title page. It’s a large autograph with enormous character.

    Walmart founder Sam Walton handwritten signed letter

    £895.00

    • A rare handwritten and signed letter from Walmart founder Sam Walton

    Sam Walton (1918-1992) was the founder and driving force behind the US supermarket chain Wal-Mart. Walton founded the first Walmart in 1962, in Rogers, Arkansas. Today there are more than 11,000 stores worldwide and it is the world’s largest retailer by revenue.

    Walton is regarded as one of the pioneers of US retail. His new methods included volume selling, by buying at a low price and passing on the discount to his customers. In the mid-1980s he was the world’s richest man. Upon his death he willed more than $100 billion to his heirs.

    Written on Walton’s “Memorandum from Sam Walton” letterhead, the 1983 letter reads:

    “Donna – we’re ordinary folks – who have been lucky & worked hard.

    Best wishes & good luck.

    Sam Walton.”

    Walton likely wrote the note in reply to a letter from Donna, asking for the secrets to Wal-Mart’s success. Walton’s reply is typical of the man. He was celebrated for his humility, work ethic and love of people.

    Measures 8.5 by 5.5 inches. Good condition. A minor crease runs vertically through the note. There are minor chips at the top edge.

    Also featured is the letter’s original Wal-Mart envelope, featuring a November 30, 1983 date stamp.

    • Learn more about this piece here 

    Walt Disney (1901 – 1966) was a celebrated voice actor, animator, film producer and entrepreneur who became an American cultural icon.

    Having founded the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in 1923, Disney rose to fame with the creation of Mickey Mouse and became a household name across the world.

    As a producer he pushed the boundaries of animation, releasing classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Dumbo and Fantasia, along with the Oscar-winning Mary Poppins.

    Disney currently holds the record for the number of Academy Awards won by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations.

    In 1955 Disney also established Disneyland, the most successful theme park ever built, which to date has attracted more than 650 million visitors.

    Walt Disney's films have entertained millions of viewers, influenced generations of film-makers, and Walt Disney Studios remains the most famous and successful entertainment company in the world. 

    This vintage black & white photograph features Walt Disney seated next to a large dog, and is signed and inscribed ""To Andy, All Best, Walt".

    The photograph was inscribed to Andy Engman (1911 – 2004), a renowned animator who worked for Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California from 1937 until 1971.

    He started his career as an uncredited 'In-Betweener' animator on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and later worked on Donald Duck and Goofy shorts, as well as features such as Fantasia and Pinocchio, before moving into management at the studio.

    The photograph is signed in black ink. The photo itself measures a vast 33 x 26.7cm (13" x 10.5") and is mounted to an overall size of 50.6 x 40.5cm (approx. 20" x 16").

    Walt Disney Signed Animation Cel

    £11,995.00

    • An original production-used animation cel signed and inscribed by Walt Disney

    Walt Disney (1901 – 1966) was an animator, film producer and entrepreneur renowned for creating Mickey Mouse and establishing one of the world's most famous film studios.

    Disney is regarded as one of animation's greatest pioneers, and he produced landmark feature films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Dumbo and Fantasia.

    Disney currently holds the record for the number of Academy Awards won by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations.

    In 1955 Disney also oversaw the creation of Disneyland, the world's most successful theme park, which to date has attracted more than 650 million visitors.

    Today Walt Disney is regarded as one of the most significant and iconic cultural figures of the 20th century. 

    This hand-painted gouache-on-celluloid animation cel was created for the film Melody Time, the 10th theatrically released animated feature produced by Walt Disney, released in May 1948. 

    It was the last anthology feature the studio produced, and featured seven short animations set to popular songs, in the same manner as the classic Fantasia.

    This animation cel and background is taken from the segment Once Upon a Wintertime, and depicts two ice skaters dancing together, along with a pair of rabbits dancing behind them.

    Once Upon a Wintertime's stylised backgrounds were created by Mary Blair, the highly influential Disney concept artist who worked on features such as Cinderella and Sleeping beauty, and who helped design the popular Disneyland ride It's a Small World.

    The mount of the image is signed and inscribed "To Ann Shelton, All Best Wishes, Walt Disney", and is dated circa 1951.

    Anne Shelton, OBE (1923 - 1994) was a British singer renowned for her work entertaining troops during WWII.

    Shelton performed for soldiers throughout the war, touring military bases and hosting the radio show Calling Malta which was broadcast throughout Europe.

    She later recorded several hit songs including ''Galway Bay' and 'Be Mine', which were also popular in the U.S and led to her touring America in 1951.

    It's believed that Shelton acquired this animation cel as a gift from Walt Disney during that tour.

    Disney's inscription and signature are signed in pencil. The image has been mounted, framed and glazed to an overall size of 39.3 x 43.7cm (approx. 15.4" x 17.2").

    • Read our full newsletter about this item here 

    William Wordsworth (1770-1850) is one of history's most famous poets, and was a founder of the Romantic Age in English literature.

    In 1798 Wordsworth and his close friend, poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, published their volume 'Lyrical Ballads', which inspired a generation of Romantic writers including John Keats, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and William Blake.

    Wordsworth served as Britain's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death in 1850, and is most renowned for 'Daffodils', one of the world's best loved poems, which begins with the line "I wandered lonely as a cloud..."

    In this handwritten note, Wordsworth has inscribed four lines from the poem 'Old Age' by the 17th century poet and politician Edmund Waller:
    "The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd,
    Lets in new light through chinks that Time hath made:
    Stronger by weakness, wiser men become
    As they draw near to their eternal home."

    The note is signed "Wm Wordsworth", and is dated "6 July, 1839".

    It also bears the address of Wordsworth's Lake District home Rydal Mount, where he lived from 1813 until his death in 1850, and which today remains a public museum dedicated to his life and work.

    The page measures 17 x 20.3 cm (approx. 6.7" x 7.9"), and features a small tear to the upper left portion, along with two horizontal fold creases.

  • Winston Churchill Signed Document
    • A document signed by one of the most significant world leaders in 20th century history

    Winston Churchill (1874 –1965) was a politician and statesman who twice served as British Prime Minister, and is regarded as one of the most influential people in British history.

    Churchill led Britain to victory against Nazi Germany during WWII, with his regular speeches and broadcasts inspiring resistance against Adolf Hitler during the darkest days of the conflict.

    In 1963 he became the first person to be declared an honorary citizen of the United States, and following his death in 1965 he was granted a state funeral by Queen Elizabeth II to mark his service to the nation.

    In addition to his political career, Churchill was a renowned writer and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.

    He was also an accomplished painter, and his paintings remain highly sought-after by collectors today.

    This document relates to the naturalization of a Russian immigrant and his family prior to WWI.

    Certificates of Naturalization could be issued to any 'alien' who had lived in Britain for more than five years.

    These applications were then signed off personally by the Secretary of State for the Home Office, a role to which Churchill was promoted in 1910.

    At just 35 years old, he was the second-youngest politician in British history to ever hold the position.

    The two-page document is dated September 16, 1911, and bears Churchill's signature on the second page.

    The document includes pencil annotations in the top right corners of both sheets, and has minor soiling.

    Also included is a collection of 15 original wartime press photographs featuring Winston Churchill on several occasions.

    The black and white photographs come in different sizes, and feature their original press captions pasted onto the rear.

    A superb collection of items relating to the 20th century's 'Greatest Briton'.

    Included are Ernest Hemingway, Albert Einstein, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, Pablo Picasso, Walter Kronkite, JFK and Winston Churchill.

    Karsh's image of Churchill brought him international prominence, and is claimed to be the most reproduced photographic portrait in history.

    He explained: "Churchill's cigar was ever present. I held out an ashtray but he would not dispose of it...

    "I said "Forgive me, Sir" and plucked the cigar from his mouth. He looked so belligerant he could have devoured me, It was at that instant that I took the photo"

    This book offers a second, little known, photo of Churchill. One where Karsh describes him as 'smiling and benign'. It's a favourite of the Churchill family.

    Of the 100 most notable people of the century, named by the International Who's Who [2000], Karsh had photographed 51.

    Karsh has inscribed the book: "Inscribed for Steve Keyser, with the good wishes of Yousuf Karsh 1985"
