    The Doors - A Set of Signatures on Individual Playing Cards, 1967. Four separate playing cards; the first an ace of hearts, signed in red felt-tip ink "JMorrison;" the second a king of diamonds, also signed in red felt-tip ink "Ray Manzarek / Doors;" the third an ace of clubs further signed in red felt-tip ink "Robby" [Krieger]; and the fourth an ace of diamonds signed in blue ballpoint ink "John" [Densmore]; included with a 'letter of provenance' reading in part "In the summer of 1967... / at the Wohlman skating rink in Central Park [New York City]... / at a Paul Butterfield Blues Band concert (Neil Diamond was the warm up act)... / we noticed all of the members of the Doors sitting and waiting as well... / my friend / and I approached them to ask for autographs. Having no paper, they shuffled through the / deck of cards we had been using in our pinochle game, each member of the band selected / his own card, signed it, and gave it back to us -- possibly the only Doors' autographs on / playing cards!" (Please note the verso of all cards shows slight glue residue where they were previously adhered to a mat; also note that there is slight smudging on the "JM" of Jim Morrison's autograph.)
    Each Card: 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
