John Wayne Signed Magazine

This lot has closed

Estimate: $500+


Issue of The Saturday Evening Post from March 1976, Vol. 248, No. 2, 120 pages, 10.25 x 13.25, featuring a large portrait of John Wayne in Western attire, signed below in black ink, "Yeh—but it's my face, Duke," who writes in response to an amusing inscription directly above, done presumably by the article writer David Sutton, who also served as the photographer: "To Dave, My 'erudite' friend—who said 'It may be your photo—but, it's my makeup.' Con affectione, Dave." Sutton appears to have also struck through and emended the lower article title to read: "Me and the Duke." In very good to fine condition, with light creasing and handling wear. Previous consignor noted that the magazine originates from the estate of David Sutton, who served as Wayne's makeup man.
