    Robert Blake Signed Photo to Buckwheat. An 8" x 10" portrait of Robert Blake during his 1939-1944 Our Gang era, when he played "Mickey." Originally Blake used his birth name of Michael Gubitosi (or "Mickey" Gubitosi), later changing it professionally to Bobby Blake. In slightly-scrawled handwriting, Blake writes "Your pal Mickey," and had presented the still to Our Gang co-star Buckwheat. There are some chips in the borders and a few minor creases and tiny blemishes - overall Very Fine + condition. It is fascinating to look at all this childhood innocence and ponder Blake's performance as the killer of In Cold Blood, his Emmy award winning Baretta and his 2005 acquittal of charges of having murdered his wife. From the William "Buckwheat" Thomas Jr. Estate.
