Here's something Extraordinary you won't see again!   SIGNED Cal Neva Treasure !

You know the history of Frank Sinatra , the mob and the Cal Neva Lodge Casino he owned for only two years.   (if not read below).    Original Cal Neva memorabilia is highly desirable by collectors not only for it’s rich history of being a popular getaway to the biggest stars, politicians, mobsters and famous personalities but its intimate Rat Pack connection .    The Cal Neva relics that typically appear on the market are the Gold Lighters and ash trays.  More rare are the Frank Sinatra’s Cal Neva Gold Cuff Links and Tie Clips.  But, an original Cal Neva Wine Menu has appeared on the market , maybe twice over the past 25 years..  .  And, of course what makes this beyond extraordinary is it has been authentically autographed by the man himself Frank Sinatra with his early 60s style signature that seasoned collectors and astute Sinatra dealers will immediately recognize.   Note, the most expensive item on the menu is Dom Perignon for $22 a bottle!  

Size: 7 1/2" x 5" closed,  about 7.5"x10" opened.  Has some minor age related stains on inside and age toning which adds a nice touch of  attractive vintage authenticity to this near 60 year old menu once in the hands of the immortal Frank Sinatra.   AND, the Signature is PERFECT!

Mr Sinatra has signed inside the Wine Menu with beautiful bold ball point pen pristine ink signature , "For Letty Frank Sinatra"

Provenance:
This piece of history comes with incredible provenance.  We were fortunate enough to acquire directly from the original recipient who met Mr Sinatra in 1963,  "Letty", which in itself is quite extraordinary.   And Letty's exciting letter of provenance detailing how and when she witnessed Mr Sinatra Sign this very Menu is as amazing as the Autographed Treasure itself!     Letty states in part "When I was 13 (1963), my best friend’s parents took us to Tahoe that summer. We went that evening to a dinner show at Cal-Neva to see Eddie Fisher perform.." .  This letter which goes into more detail is included along with the Lifetime Guarantee COA.  . 

We have only seen one other CAL Neva Wine Menu in our 39 years collecting Sinatra memorabilia.  However, as hard to believe as it is, this astonishing find has been authentically signed by Frank Sinatra.     An extraordinary discovery!

Cal Neva History:


During the time this item was made, Frank Sinatra was at a very high point in his life and career and figured that it would be great to partner up with buddy Dean Martin and silent partner, Chicago mob boss, Sam "Momo" Giancana, and others to run his own casino, the Cal Neva Lodge.   He owned the Cal Neva for a short period, from 1960-1963.  

However, Nevada gaming commission regulations prohibited the attendance of any known criminals at any of its licensed gaming facilities. Since the FBI was watching the Cal Neva closely, they reported that mob boss Sam Giancana did visit the facility and his presence was acknowledged by Frank Sinatra. As a result, after just two years, Frank Sinatra lost his gaming license for the Cal Neva... Years later, in the early 1980s, Frank would redeem himself before the Nevada gaming commission and win his license back after grueling testimony by himself, Kirk Douglas, the Los Angeles sheriff, and many others. It's interesting to note that in Frank Sinatra's testimony, he stated that he never saw Sam Giancana at the Cal Neva.

NOTE:  Original Relics from the "Frank Sinatra Cal Neva Lodge" are extremely popular and highly sought after by collectors.  But, it is incredibly Scarce to find a Cal Neva relic an authentically Signed by Frank Sinatra.
