    Description

    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"

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
