Renowned American magician (1885–1965) who reached the peak of his popularity in the 1930s and 1940s. Original color 21 x 28 performance poster for Blackstone’s performance at the Henry Clay Auditorium in Lexington, Kentucky, in the late 1950s, signed in black artist’s pencil, “Col. Harry Blackstone,” adding a nice profile portrait sketch to the right of his signature. Blackstone was in Kentucky and as a VIP visitor was probably appointed honorary Kentucky Colonel by the governor’s office. Also signed in ballpoint by The Great Jarvis. Rolled and in very good condition, with mild toning, scattered creasing, dings, and small tears to edges, and some light wrinkling. R&R COA.
