Description



Film buffs focus in on this 1961 "The Hustler" dual-signed display. A true American classic, this gripping sports-gambling film stars Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason as master pool players "Fast Eddie" Felson and "Minnesota Fats". These protagonists are showcased in high style, with this elaborate 44-1/2  x  36" framed display piece.

 

Newman and Gleason are pictured lagging for the break in the central photo. Arrayed around them, are the two parts of a pool cue at top and bottom, a rack, several balls, and an engraved title plate. The most important features are autographed insets at top, with a Gleason signed photo ("9-10") with "My Best Wishes" salutation; and a Newman signed publication clipping ("6-7").

 

All components present handsomely, with this unique display stacking up as a fantastic entertainment/sports crossover piece. PSA/DNA sticker for the Gleason autograph, auction LOA from JSA for the Newman autograph.
