PSA Graded Mint 9
Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) was an American icon and universally considered the greatest singer of his generation. It is amazing how many of today's artists speak so highly of his talent. He certainly lived a charmed life and was an accommodating signer at certain times. More than once, for example, we have heard stories of him signing in front of his apartment at the Waldorf Hotel in NYC. Nonetheless, he remains so popular today that his autograph is still very difficult to locate. It's the classic case of demand outweighing supply.
We paired this outstanding piece with our favorite photo of 'Ole Blue Eyes, an 8x10 glossy photo of the big band crooner as he appeared in the 1940's. It makes the perfect statement for this display and speaks to a time when dinner shows and nightclubs in big cities was the order of the day. Sinatra began his career as a singer in the Swing Era, working for bands led by Tommy Dorsey and Harry James. He later went on to a solo career. "Bobby Sockers" lined up for blocks to see him perform at venues such as the Paramount Theater in New York.
The autograph has been placed in archival Mylar for protection, paired with the photograph and expertly double-matted in blue (what else?). In addition, our framer used a stately antique-style gold frame to accentuate its importance. Ultraviolet-protected plexiglass was used to further protect this wonderful display. The result is one gorgeous Frank Sinatra piece of memorabilia that can be proudly shown off to friends and visitors in an office or family room. If you love Sinatra and his music, this is the perfect piece.
