Description

    Autographs by Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bill Haley and many more. These autographs were collected at a 1956 show at the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto (a newspaper advertisement for the show is included with this lot). All artists signed in pencil on small 3 1/4 by 4 inch slips of paper. In addition to Haley, Comets members Franny Beecher, Ralph Jones and Johnny Grande signed. The Platters were also on the bill, and Zola Taylor, Dave Lynch, Herb Reed, and Tony Williams of that group are represented here. Frankie Lymon's autograph is in this group, as well as those of Buddy Bailey and Harold Lucas of the Clovers, plus Ella Johnson's autograph and those of Shirley and Lee. Berry (who had sixth billing for the event!) and Little Richard signed both sides of the same card. The other ten autographs haven't been conclusively attributed, but we do know that Clyde McPhatter, Buddy Johnson and his Big Band, the Flairs, and Shirley Gunther were also on the bill. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
