Description


Ink signature, "Michael Jackson,” on a 3.75 x 4.25 lightly trimmed cardstock sheet printed with "Please Add Me to the Toys International Mailing List" on the reverse. In fine condition, with light toning from prior display.

Accompanied by a detailed letter of provenance from the original recipient: "This signature…was personally given to me by Michael Jackson himself on July 4, 1992 in a toy store in Century City, California. My friend…and I were 'sightseeing' the skyscrapers around the primarily business area because everything seemed closed for the holiday and there was no traffic to contend with. Suddenly I spotted one business that appeared to be open, it was a large toy store…The store appeared empty except for 3 people standing near the back; a sales clerk, a man and a young boy who appeared to be about 10 years of age. Although he was dressed in ordinary clothing, it didn't take long for us to recognize that the man was Michael Jackson…I noticed that he and the boy were about to leave the store. Just as they walked past me, I found a small piece of blank white paper and a pen and proceeded to walk behind them. When I realized they would soon be gone, I began mimicking a child's plea out loud; 'Please Michael, huh, can I have your autographs? Please' The young boy who was walking at his side began to laugh out loud and at that moment, Michael Jackson, without stopping, put his right hand behind his back, with his thumb and forefinger open, as if waiting for me to give him the piece of paper. I quickly caught up and placed the pen and paper between his thumb and forefinger. Without missing a step, he quickly brought it around, signed it and put his hand behind him again to return it."
