I have a very nice signed 5"x 7" sepia tone (or maybe it's just old as dirt) photo of Al Jolson. I have read that authentic Jolson signatures are not as common as one might think--especially considering what a colossal star he was.  Are Jolson signatures that rare? Also, I've read it is nearly impossible to find a signed photo of him in blackface. Any particular reason why?

Thank you in advance for any comments/input.

Wow--this sat for two months. Al Jolson signed photos are scarce if not rare. A number of them come up for sale every year. Depending on size, condition, photo and autograph, most range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

Your 5x7 might have a preprinted signature if it isn't personalized.

Hope this helps.
