WASHINGTON, Pa. – An autograph, book and art auction will be conducted by the Three Rivers Auction Co. on Saturday, Feb. 23, beginning at noon EST. This important sale features part of a significant lifetime collection and includes one of the most desirable signatures of the 20th century, that of astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon. Many have called Armstrong the Columbus of our time. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.
This historic sale also includes autographs of Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Calvin Coolidge and other presidents and political figures. Autographs of many important military leaders of the twentieth century, such as Eddie Rickenbacker, Gen. Jimmy Doolittle and Gen. Omar Bradley, will be featured in this sale. Signatures of stars of the theater and the silver screen include Elizabeth Taylor, Al Pacino, Audrey and Kathryn Hepburn, Henry Fonda, and dozens more. Sports autographs are represented by one of baseball's greatest stars, Honus Wagner.
Fine art and prints are also a highlight. A significant portrait of Daniel Webster attributed to artist Chester Harding is being offered. Works by western Pennsylvania artists A. F. King, Malcolm Parcell and others round out this auction.
"Autograph collecting is a fantastic way to preserve world history. Imagine holding in your hands a letter written and signed by the first man in history to walk on the moon," says auctioneer Tripp Kline.
