Two Signed 3x5 Cards Charlie Parker Twice John Coltrane Twice Louis Armstrong Julian Cannonball Adderly Golfer Bobby Jones Autograph
Two 3x5 file cards with pencil signatures, both bearing the signatures of Charlie Parker and John Coltrane, among others. One is signed by Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Julian Cannonball Adderly and Louis Armstrong. All but Armstrong added "To Stef". Armstrong, whose signature appears upside down from this view, did add "Satchmo". The second card is signed by Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, golfer Bob Jones and one other. These were obtained by longtime New York collector Stephanie Kolowski. They had been kept for decades in her scrapbook that she and her husband assembled throughout their lives. I obtained the bulk of their collection, hundreds of signed cards going back to the 1930's. There is some discoloration from the adhesive on the reverse after many decades in the scrapbook, and some damage from removing them later.
