    Glen Gray, Shep Fields, and Sammy Kaye Unsigned Window Cards. Glen Gray led the Casa Loma Orchestra, and they were the first band to appear on a radio program, "Camel Caravan", that featured a swing orchestra. A few of the great players who passed through the group were, Bobby Hackett, Pee Wee Hunt, Herb Ellis, Ray Eberle, Kenny Sargent, Sonny Durham, Red Nichols, and Larry Clinton. This card includes a likeness of Fields along with large block print of the band named. Pin holes at corners do not detract. Sammy Kaye achieved huge success leading one of the greatest "Sweet Bands", and his music was a favorite among those fans who came to dance. This unsigned card features a color image of the bandleader, plus his slogan, "Swing and Sway." The card is quite attractive. Minor defects include normal age wear, pin holes in each corner, and slight bending at the lower left hand corner. Saxophonist Shep Fields also led one of the best "Sweet Bands" of the 1930s, and at one point, Shep employed Sid Caesar on sax and Ken "Festus" Curtis, of future Gunsmoke fame, as the singer. This attractive, unsigned card has pinholes at each corner, some corner wrinkle at the bottom left corner, and a small missing piece at the upper left-hand corner. Also, there is a printing defect that shows a faint orange line from left to right, approximately 2 inches from the top of the card. The card also shows some normal age wear.
