    The Monkees: Original Television Pilot Script Signed by The Band! A tremendously significant memento in relation to the now storied history of The Monkees, offered here is an original pilot script for the group's first television show. Dated August 17, 1965, the cover for this 37-page script simply reads "The Monkeys - A Half Hour of Comedy". In addition, the cover of the script has been beautifully hand signed by all four members -- Michael Nesmith, David Jones, Peter Tork, and Micky Dolenz -- in black felt tip marker. Making note of the script's erroneous spelling of the band's name, Tork has added, "The Monkeys" along with his name, crossing out the "y" and adding an additional "e". Some light toning and a fold impression in the far left side of the cover, otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by letter from Jerry Yester, the gentleman who originally auditioned for a role in the episode and acquired the script, and who went on to join the Lovin' Spoonful after losing the Monkees gig. Very, very cool! From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.

    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!
