Vintage ballpoint signature, “Charlie Parker, 422 E 11th St, N. Y. C.,” on an off-white 3 x 1.5 slip. In very good condition, with light surface wrinkling, scattered toning, a few trivial spots of soiling, and mounting remnants on the reverse. Accompanied by a fantastic unsigned photo of the sax legend. From the collection of Gaston Criel, the noted French poet, writer and jazz enthusiast in Paris's famed St. Germain des Pres jazz scene. Incredibly rare in any form, this quickly jotted autograph makes for an exemplar piece of jazz history. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
