    An Enormous Collection of Business Cards, 1950s-1970s. Approximately 500; from countless individuals who encountered or had business dealings with Wayne including titans of industry, movie studio personnel, police officers, military officers, journalists, photographers, veterinarians, doctors, janitors, hairdressers, yacht sellers, tailors, and personal stylists, to name just a few; cards also relate to hotels, restaurants, department stores, and retail shops that Wayne patronized; many are from the Los Angeles and Newport Beach areas, though others span the world as Wayne was well-traveled; none appear to be from famous or well-known people with the exception of a card from Robert F. Slatzer -- a Hollywood hanger-on infamous for claiming to have been married to Marilyn Monroe; all housed in an old box with a handwritten annotation on the side reading "John Wayne / Misc. Business Cards;" overall, a fascinating collection showing who Wayne was meeting with professionally and personally over the course of many decades.
    Mostly: 2" x 3 1/2"
