Known as "The Singing Cowboy," this Western star appeared in dozens of films between 1934 and 1954; turning his attention to baseball, he became successful owner of the California Angels. Item #44408
Printed color program, 4to (8½" X 11"), (12pp), n.p., n.y. Good plus. Edgeworn and either misnumbered (printed page 10 followed by printed page 15 as inside rear wrapper, though nothing appears removed). "Souvenir Program" (front wrapper title) of "The Gene Autry Show... Featuring Gail Davis TV's Annie Oakley" (title page), undated but late 1950s vintage. Numerous illustrations. Heavy stock color front wrapper features, within decorative border, a closeup of Autry in Western garb smiling above his horse's decorative saddle where his hands (one clutching a lariat) rest. At lower left of this image is a facsimile signature of Autry -- almost side by side with this, at lower right of this image, an irregularly-clipped slip (roughly 3¼" X 1¼") bearing his actual signature in blue ballpoint has been neatly affixed. Several small tape stains at margins. Signature undated, but circa 1960. Once Gail Davis's syndicated "Annie Oakley" series (1854-57) came off the air, she toured with Autry in his traveling rodeo for several years. Despite mild wear both to program and signature, an appealing and very displayable image.
