From time to time I will post interesting items that I see on eBay that would be of interest to a LVC fan. These are not endorsements of the sellers, just merely my observations of interesting or rare items.

Very cool item!


DESCRIPTION: EXTREMELY RARE & UNUSUAL- Actor LEE VAN CLEEF authentic vintage 1958 originally hand signed agreement and examples of his signature and salutations written with a blue ink ballpoint pen. See below provenance for details but this document which is meant to display several examples of his signature so that a fan club company can duplicate it for different signed items.

PROVENANCE: From the personal archive of publicist LARRY KLENO who also worked with a fan club exchange called United Fan Club and Fan Mail Service and later called the V.I.P. Fan Mail Service. The archive contained hundreds of original authentic examples of autographs with different inscriptions by celebrities represented by the company and used for fan mail processed by them. - All of my autographed items have a lifetime money back guarantee of authenticity (see Return Policy)

SIZE: approx. 8 1/2" X 9 1/2" (trimmed on the top)

OTHER: on a creme colored paper

CONDITION: Good with light yellowing (much less than appears in the scan), two horizontal folds from the original mailing and light handling wear. (Please note that I am extremely condition conscious so I always point out the slightest anomalies)


  1. Looks like Lee's handwriting to me. Often his salutation is: "good luck"

  2. I've always been a little skeptical of autographs on eBay, but what I really find hard to believe was that Van Cleef had a fan club in 1958!
