Vintage ballpoint signatures of Charlie Parker, Tommy Potter, Al Haig, Max Roach, and Kenny Dorham on an irregularly trimmed off-white sheet. Sheet is affixed to a board along with a trimmed portrait of Parker performing, and matted to an overall size of 14.25 x 14.5. In fine condition, with a bit of scattered light toning. Signatures were most likely acquired between December of 1948 and February of 1949 while this line-up was playing at the Royal Roost in New York City. Complete group signatures are incredibly rare on a single piece. Provenance: The Larry Rafferty Collection. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
