Robert F Kennedy Joe Louis Gore Vidal Carl Sandburg Irving Berlin Pierre Salinger Sir Edmund Hillary Al Capp Signed Album Autograph ITEM SOLD
This album "101 Strings Play The Blues" has been signed on the back cover by Gore Vidal, Robert Kennedy, Pierre Salinger, Irving Berlin and Edmund Hillary in blue ballpoint or biro pen, and Carl Sandburg, Joe Louis and Al Capp in pencil. The signatures were obtained by Cicely Steinberg, who grew up on Broadway from the early 1950's onward. Cicely would obtain records from the nearby Colony Records store on Broadway, and roam the Broadway theater distrct and nearby hotels, collecting the autographs of whatever celebrities she would encounter. The record store owner would let Cicely take records earmarked to be returned to the manufactuers, if she would collect some signatures for him in her endeavors. Hence the budget albums which were used to collect the autographs. The album cover and vinyl are in excellent shape. The album was releasd on the Somerset Stereo Fidelity label in 1958.
