Greetings-

Hope this finds everyone healthy at this time.  I'm posting here for the first time.  I've been a collector for several years and a "lurker" here for awhile.  I have wanted to post for quite awhile and thought that I would jump in now.

Recently I have come across this mid-1950's Braniff Airlines ticket envelope signed in pencil by James Dean.  I pulled the trigger and purchased it. It's quite large with the envelope measuring 7" x 7 1/4" so the signature is a generous size.  It came from a respected source who had purchased it at auction several years ago (which I was able to verify).  

I shared it with our administrator Steve C. and he was favorable as to it's authenticity (thanks again for looking, Steve).  I also did the PSA QUICK OPINION and it came back "likely authentic".  

I thought I would post it here as an exemplar as it's a Dean that is in pencil, rather than ballpoint or fountain pen as most of the ones I have seen.  It looks to be a quick signature.  Hope this is of interest. 

Sincerely,

(another) Steve

Done!  Hope that does the trick.

It does! Thank you.

+1 very nice and clean Dean. 

Thanks guys...I appreciate your comments on this Dean.

In this hobby, it always helps to have some "experienced eyes" taking a look at a piece.
