    Description

    Robert Stroud Signed Letter. Here is a handwritten letter from Robert Stroud, the "Birdman of Alcatraz," to Mamie Stroud, dated October 2, 1950, concerning family news, a medication that he is taking, and speculation on recent events. The letter reads in part: "My kidney gives me a lot of pain in the morning, but it is gradually improving. So is my tongue. The tip is a little sore. They are giving me all the vitamins in the book ... I am wondering if that really was a meteor you saw and heard ... I am wondering if it could have been the Oakridge Atomic Bomb plant that blew up and they are calling it a meteor to hide the truth." In fine condition, with even overall toning and a couple of small edge tears. With COA from PSA/DNA.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
