This piece is Sold but if you have any Harry Houdini Signed items to sell please Contact Us
Amazing genuine vintage Harry Houdini autograph in dark vintage fountain pen “Best wishes Harry Houdini May 16/04” (year is either 1904 or 1909). Also, what makes this an exceptional Houdini piece is he did NOT personalize it to someone , PLUS he signed his FULL NAME, not just Houdini as it often seen on autographed photos and albums. And, this signature is about the best we have ever seen, a large, dark bold beautiful specimen. Over 4" long. We would rate this signature a 10 out of 10.
BUT, what makes this piece even more incredible is it is framed with an ORIGINAL Harry Houdini Program from his 1926-27 season. However, his life would be cut short in late 1926. The program is in very good condition with obvious wear and fragile on the spine. The front and back cover has become detached from the rest of program. The program is filled with photos of Houdini in some movie roles, speaking to the NY Police Dept and other interesting events Houdni attended during the early-mid 1920's. The back cover even promotes him as "ON TOUR - Harry Houdini - The World's Greatest Entertainer". This program was given out during his events.
*NOTE: There are sellers online selling reproduction prints of the front cover of this program for $20. AN original program if for sale would sell for several hundred dollars.
The autograph is an incredible 4" long, on a page from an old autograph album. The page is about 5 x 8", so gives you an idea how large and bold the signature is. It was apparently kept inside the autograph album for the past 90-100+ years, which is why the condition is so extraordinary. .
It was originally In a 18 x 23" gold frame. However, I removed both the program and autograph for inspection. If you want the frame I can include it
