    Description

    Card Signed by Hollywood Greats Including Jean Harlow, Clara Bow, Others. A 10.5" x 13.5" card signed by a host of early stars including Jean Harlow -- an elusive signature to acquire, as her mother "Mama Jean" signed most of her autographs. This one is the real deal, an authentic Jean Harlow signature. Another rare autograph from Will Rogers appears towards the center. Rogers tragic death in 1935 makes his autographs quite rare, and dates the card to pre-1935. Also included are: Clara Bow, Charley Chase, Fredric March, Stan Laurel, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford, Spencer Tracy, Gary Cooper, Claudette Colbert, Richard Barthelmess, Douglass Fairbanks Jr., Janet Gaynor, Joan Bennett, Buster Crabbe, Wallace Beery, Ruth Chatterton, Marie Dressler, Colleen Moore, Loretta Young, Buddy Rogers, Paul Muni, John Boles, and many more. All signatures are in various shades of black ink, and though a few of them overlap they are all in incredible shape considering the card's age. The piece was dedicated to the Argentine film director Carlos Borcosque, on behalf of Sintona fan magazine, and reprinted in the journal along with a note in Spanish to the fans (attached en verso). A treasure trove of fabulous autographs made all the more desirable by the inclusion of an elusive actual Jean Harlow signature. In overall Very Fine condition with age-toning to card and minor corner and border wear. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.
