    Nick Adams Signed Letter. Featured is an undated one-page, double-sided handwritten letter on personal stationery signed by the popular actor of the 1950s and '60s best remembered as Johnny Yuma on the TV series "The Rebel" (1959-61). Adams was often cast in the same "troubled young man" mold as his good friend, James Dean, whom he mentions in the letter. In part: "The article about Jimmy and Vampira was not true. Jimmy smoked Viceroys most of the time. I'm enclosing a picture of Jimmy from a scene in 'Giant.' I wish I could send you something of his but I only have a few things of his and I would never part with them." The letter is in great condition with mild overall toning and a fold crease. A wonderful James Dean association piece. With COA from PSA/DNA.
