ROY CAMPANELLA Hall of Fame catcher allows Gillette to use his name, photo and endorsement in ads. Typed DS: "Roy Campanella", 1p, 8x8. No place, 1956 September 28. In part: "The Gillette Safety Razor Company and/or Maxon Incorporated…have my permission to use my name, address, photograph and/or likeness, together with the above statement…for any and all advertising purposes…for the period of one year from first public use…I shall not allow my name and/or photograph to be used in connection with competitive shaving products for the above period." Address: "East Island, Glen Cove, L.I." in another hand. Also signed: "Joan Crosby" as witness. This document most likely was attached to a statement by Campanella about Gillette shaving products. Three time MVP Roy Campanella (1921-1993) was the catcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1948-1957. In January 1958, his career was cut short by an automobile accident that left him paralyzed. The Gillette Cavalcade of Sports was televised on NBC from 1948-1960. While the Friday night show always showed boxing matches, the remainder of the hour was filled with features such as "Great Moments in Sports" or "Red Barber's Corner". Testimonials for Gillette Safety Razors from great athletes, including Campanella, were shown during commercial breaks. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 22½x22½. Accompanied by PSA/DNA LOA.
