    Prince Emergency Out-Patient Record Signed with Full Name! Prince is one of our most reclusive and mysteriously private icons. It is exceedingly difficult to acquire anything personally signed by him, and that is exactly what makes this lot truly amazing and fantastic. On January 19, 1981, at 8:50 AM, Prince R. Nelson arrived at the Fairview Southdale Hospital Emergency Room in Minnesota, complaining of congestion. He was treated and released. The documentation is all here, plus three handwritten entries from April and May of 1981, documenting unsuccessful attempts to receive payment for the medical services rendered! In the space for signature that guarantees payment at time of treatment, he has signed his name in full: "Prince R. Nelson." The hospital paper is matted in black velvet with a great color photo of the artist, which is further matted in purple lace, increasing the overall size to 22x33. This lot is truly unique! Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
