    Cab Calloway Concert Poster (Mills Artists Presents, circa late 1930s to early 1940s). Extremely Rare. Window card tour blank printed on card stock showing a fantastic vintage image of Calloway in coat and tails holding a conductor's baton. The text reads "HI-De-Ho Mills Artists inc. presents Cab Calloway and his Cotton Club Orchestra featuring Cozy Cole • Cab Jivers • Jonah Jones". Measures 14" x 22". In Very Good Plus condition, corners slightly rounded, minor creases and nicks to left edge, general toning.

    This is the only known example of this poster. Although there is no date or venue on the poster it is likely that it was printed in the late 1930s or early 1940s, as the line-up includes Cozy Cole, who was Calloway's percussionist from around 1939 to 1943.
