    Mickey Rooney Signed Licensing Agreements, 1939 and 1940. Two licensing agreements signed by Mickey Rooney in association with the Whitman Publishing book series Little Big Books, dated January 1, 1939, and November 4th, 1940, respectively. The 1939 agreement was signed by then 18-year-old Rooney on the second page in black ink. The 1940 agreement between Whitman and Rooney bears the child-star's signature in blue ink on page nine and specifies that Rooney's likeness and name be published in combination with those of Judy Garland's. Also included is a 1938 letter extending the contract, signed by Rooney's mother, and an MGM memo from 1940, regarding details of the Whitman/Rooney agreement. With minor corner wear, mailing creases, and moderate age-toning, otherwise, the set is in overall Very Good to Fine condition. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.
