Description

    James Dean Signed Hubcap. A fan of motorcycles and sports cars, James Dean was an avid motorist with a short but impressive racing career, finishing in the top three of his first two professional races. Rather appropriately, Warner Bros. had Dean sign this hubcap as part of a promotion for Rebel Without a Cause, and the rising star gamely inscribed it with "Hey, hope the cops don't catch you stealing hubcaps" around the rim before signing his name boldly in black grease pencil in the center. Two other hubcaps were signed, whether by Dean or his Rebel co-stars Sal Mineo and Natalie Wood is unknown as they have both long since disappeared. Fortunately, the most prized of the three has been meticulously cared for and preserved, and is in Excellent condition with only the slightest smudging to the signature. A fascinating and unique piece of Hollywood history, bearing a great sample of a rare and much sought after autograph. From the James Dean Museum archive. With COA from David Loehr.
