PATSY CLINE

Classic vintage 8×10 glossy black and white chest-up publicity portrait of the iconic country singer, signed in blue ballpoint ink, “Many thanks/Patsy Cline.”  Fine condition, with patches of light silvering to some of the darker areas of the image, completely invisible when the photograph is viewed head on; a tiny surface chip along the extreme right edge; and the writing just a shade light but generally quite readable.  The rather heavy pen impressions indicate that Cline was pressing extra hard to get the light blue ink to show up on the photograph.  Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from contemporary music specialist Roger Epperson.
