"Rat Pack" Autographed Photo
Frank Sinatra - Dean Martin - Sammy Davis Jr
The Only "Authentic" One of it's Kind!
From the Jilly Rizzo Estate
Amazing Life Like Size: 31 x 38”
What value do you put on an extremely desirable piece of history, that is the only one in existence? We say one of a kind because in nearly 30 years of collecting we have NEVER seen an authentic Rat Pack autographed photo signed by the three primary members of that exclusive “club”. And, neither has the country’s top vintage Hollywood Autograph dealers and Sinatra experts.
Sure, you‘ve seen countless secretarial or forged signed photos on places like eBay. But, if anyone has an example or image of a GENUINE signed photo by all three of these immortal Hollywood and Music legends we would love to see it. Because we have been looking for over 25 years. As many of our clients know, Frank Sinatra autographed memorabilia is one of our areas of expertise.
Frank Sinatra GENUINE autographs are themselves rare as about 95% on the market were NOT authentically signed by Frank Sinatra himself but by authorized secretarial signers and unauthorized forgers. . . I have even seen photos signed for friends that had the Sinatra “secretarial” signature. But, to have ALL THREE "Rat Pack" members on the same photo is UNHEARD of. . For over 20 years we have had countless requests for "Rat Pack" signed photos and our answer has always been "Genuine autographed Rat Pack photos do not exist", until now.
So WHY, so HOW, so WHO could possibly get all THREE of these men in person, into a room to all sign his OVER-SIZED, Life Like photo of Frank, Dean and Sammy? Who was Frank Sinatra’s best friend? Who owned the nightclub these three frequented as “Rat Pack “ members in New York City? WHO Is mentioned in a number of Frank Sinatra songs? That could only be Jilly Rizzo, owner of the famous Jilly’s. But, instead of rambling on about the close relationship between Frank Sinatra and Jilly Rizzo, just Google Jilly Rizzo and you’ll find plenty information.
In the perfect location on each of their tuxedo white shirts they have inscribed to Jilly and signed their names. Dean signs “To Jilly Love Dean Martin”, Sammy signed “To Mr “I” I Love You Always Sammy Jr" and Frank signed “To My Man Jilly with Love Frank Sinatra”.
The size of this photo is ALSO another incredible phenomenon of this amazing piece measuring a life size like 31 x 38” and framed to 31.75 x 39.25". It is in the original frame Jilly had it put in so the frame has some dirt spots around the cloth inlay.
The museum quality item has been professionally certified by JSA, James Spence Authentication. Also, comes with Certificate of Provenance signed by Jilly Rizzo's son.
** It is HIGHLY Unlikely a piece like this will ever appear on the market again.
