MILBURN STONE

Scarce vintage signature and inscription, “To John/’Doc’/Milburn Stone,” in blue fountain pen on a 6×4 white index card.  Very fine condition, with a small magazine photograph affixed at the top right corner.  A pencil notation on the reverse side indicates that this autograph was obtained in person in May 1966.  John Verzi collection.  Milburn stone appeared in over 600 episodes of the long-running TV Western series, “Gunsmoke.”. His “overnight” success only came after two decades of work in Hollywood, frequently as an unbilled bit player or supporting actor at Poverty Row studios.
