$950.00

Barbra Streisand
Authentic Autographed Signed Photo
Pre-Certified Beckett

 

Unless you're a long time autograph collector you may not know that 95% of the Barbra Streisand autographs on the market are secretarial forgeries.  Like Frank Sinatra she never signed anything Herself  through the mail.   So when an Authentic IN-PERSON example like this appears on the market, its a RARE choice opportunity. 

Color glossy 8 x 10 full-length photo of Streisand as Dolly Levi from the 1969 musical Hello, Dolly!, signed in blue felt tip, "Best, Barbra." In fine condition. From The John Brennan In-person Autograph Collection.

Note: This letter has been Pre-Certified Authentic by Beckett (meaning they confirmed it authentic but I did not purchase the full COA Letter). 

John Brennan: In-person autograph collection

John Brennan didn’t start out with the intention of amassing thousands of autographs. It just sort of happened—one band, one concert, one rock n’ roll icon at a time, over the past 40 years. 
Brennan, 53, grew up in Shelton, Connecticut and bought his first album in 1975: KISS “Alive!” “I was a huge record collector first.” he said. That began a lifelong and self-proclaimed obsession with rock music for him. A year later at age 11, he “dragged his parents” to see the concert film “The Song Remains the Same,” starting his “straight-up obsession with Led Zeppelin.” 
Soon the young teen was sleeping outdoors to snag concert tickets, meeting new people, and getting into all the heavy hitters of rock: Peter Frampton, Ted Nugent, the Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen. But ironically, it was an alt-pop band that would send Brennan in the direction his life would head for four decades. 
Brennan’s first autograph was obtained basically due to its ease: the B-52s were staying at a hotel across from the performance venue in 1979. From then on, he began collecting autographs from every concert, waiting at stage doors, tour buses and hotels. By 1984, “it was daily life” for him, usually driving the 75 miles from his hometown to New York City, meeting every music superstar you could imagine. “I was a crazy kid, and I always had a band to go for,” he said, carrying his backpack of pens and items waiting for autographs. Brennan’s time in the Big Apple had him rubbing elbows with the most enviable celebrity roster; the names that will stand the test of time. 
He soon became known as “the Dude”—a nickname given to him by other people in the hobby at the record stores he would frequent in the Village; or “Captain Sneaks”—given to him by his fellow collectors. “If you met someone and didn’t let the autograph community know, you were a ‘sneak.’ But that’s how you had to do it. It’s so different today. If social media had been around then, the last thing I’d ever do was post a pic of Kurt [Cobain] while he was still in town. Now celebrities and collectors are all posting where they are.” 
Brennan would travel across the US—and the globe—countless times, following the Beatles and the Stones, Van Halen, Guns N’ Roses and Nirvana, collecting photographs, autographs and a truly astonishing lifetime of memories. From a small town in Connecticut, to New York City, Los Angeles and Seattle; London, Paris, Germany, Holland and Canada; John Brennan has been there, experienced that.
