For the fan of professional women's basketball, this is a medium size vintage Women's NBA t-shirt, of the Los Angeles Sparks, dating from approximately 1999 to 2001, signed on the cloth in marker by five or six members of the team. I am not a keen basketball fan or knowledgeable about women's basketball, but I have researched this item online and determined that at least two of the autographs are by Allison Feaster, and Ukari Figgs, and I believe Mwadi Mabika...

A color photograph of Ronald Reagan standing in front of a microphone, plane-side, evidently in the heart of the 1966 governor's race in California. The photograph is signed in white opaque ink at lower right evidently by the photographer, one Bennett Alley. Extensive online research has not led to a known photographer by this name, surprisingly. The photo is in excellent condition and appears to have been framed as far back as the 1970's. Dimensions as framed 18 1/2" by 22 1/2"...

For the political memorabilia collector here is a wonderfully drawn original satirical work showing former president Jimmy Carter in his 1970's prime, holding a basketball and dressed as a player. It appears to likely reference his having been a basketball player at Plains, Georgia High School in the early 1940's; photos of him with the team can be found on the net by googling "jimmy carter basketball"...

Original pastel on heavy paper, unsigned, 20" by 14 1/2", presently unframed, depicting the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy. This is the classic image that is burned into many minds---Kennedy in his prime, with the distinctively parted hair and suit and tie. An interesting acquisition for the student of presidential history or anyone who admired JFK. There is some color change compared to the portion that was under the mat (see photos), and a touch of mold spots in one...

Ginsberg is today almost a folk figure, as the American poet who beginning in the 1950's participated in the bi-coastal movement which preceded even the Hippies. HOWL was published in 1956 by City Lights Bookshop i...
