Sale Price $72.00
Clipped guestbook page signed and dated in blue ink by Chicago columnist Irv Kupcinet in Washington, DC in 1947
Signature: "May 9, 1947 - Washington DC./Irv Kupcinet" in blue ink. 9¼x1¾. Kupcinet (1912-2003, born Irving Kupcinet in North Lawndale, Chicago, Illinois) was drafted out of college to the Philadelphia Eagles, but a shoulder injury ended his career and shunted him into sports writing. He was hired by the Chicago Daily Times (now the Chicago Sun-Times) in 1935 and given his own gossip column in 1943. This column, renamed Kup's Column in 1948, was a fixture in the paper until his death in 2003. He gained a wider audience when he launched his own talk show in 1952 and replaced Jack Paar on The Tonight Show in 1957. Another incarnation of his show, The Irv Kupcinet Show, ran from 1962 to 1971. Lightly toned. Random ink stains, which touch signature. Top and right edges are lightly discolored. Otherwise in fine condition.
