    Ernie Kovacs Signed Letter and Card. Typed letter on CBS Television letterhead, dated September 16, 1953, signed in fountain ink by Ernie Kovacs. The letter is to a fan and Kovacs included an "EEFMS" membership card -- "The Early Eyeball Fraternal and Marching Society," which Kovacs has also signed over a line reading: "(Janitor) WCBS-TV." The front of the card has a huge eyeball illustrated on it; this likely was a novelty offered to fans as Kovacs' TV fame grew. Added to the letter is a handwritten note to the fan from "Vicki," possibly one of the "Philly fans" on Kovacs' show. Letter is postmarked in New York September 16, 1953 and has a "Keep your eye on CBS Television" stamp on the front of the envelope. Excellent condition.
