(Check out Frank Sinatra under Special Collections for more Authentic Signed items)
In over 25 years of collecting Sinatra original signed memorabilia, we have seen VERY few such personalized as this. Here is indeed an extraordinary vintage Signed photo from Sinatra to the manager of the Earle Theater in Philadelphia.
An early personalized Frank Sinatra autographed picture. This autograph is on a MCA Management photo titled Frank Sinatra Featured With Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra and is personalized: "To Tony With Fondest Regards You've been a great help- Sincerely Frank" The family of Tony St. Angelo, who we acquired this from and autographed photos of others indicates he managed the famous Earle Theater in Philadelphia during the 30's and 40's. He associated with many of the stars of that time during their stay in Philadelphia. The Earle Theater opened in 1924 and was demolished in 1953. The Earle Theater was home to many major music performers who were just starting out and were less known in the 40's including Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey Frank Sinatra, etc. in addition to theater.
Sinatra is so popular he is heavily forged particularly on the internet auction sites like Ebay. Here is an unquestionably Authentic example.
This extraordinary item comes with a letter of provenance from Tony’s niece who inherited these photos. It also comes with a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity from Conway’s Vintage Treasures.
