The Best Kept Secret in Magic
  • Photo - Jack Coats and Leroy

         Great pose of the late figuremaker Jack Coats with his own figure Leroy.

          This print came from the Col. Bill Boley Collection. In the late 90's (and earlier, for that matter), Bill had many 8" x 10" photos from his own vent memorabilia collection duplicated for sale and trade with other vent collectors. After Bill's untimely passing, I purchased much of Bill's collection of "ventriloquiana" from his lovely widow, Charlene. To my surprise (and delight!), I discovered several boxes absolutely packed with 8" x 10" vent photos...sometimes as many as 50-60 duplicates of a single photo. The vast majority of them are relatively recent (within the past 15 years, certainly) reprints. They are all photographic prints, however. NONE are inkjet or cheap quality homemade jobs! These are all TOP QUALITY glossy photographs. Unless otherwise stated in the description, this photo is one of the photographic reprints Col. Bill Boley had printed by a photographic reprint house.

          Photo measures 8" x 10". In very fine/mint condition (any "waviness" or "patterns" in the website photo are due to the scanning process...the actual photograph is perfect).

          Comes protected in an archival mylar bag with acid-free backboard. Please note - "Gottle O' Geer" is on the website image ONLY....the actual photo does NOT have "Gottle O' Geer" written across it. (I know, I wouldn't think I'd have to explain this, but you'd be amazed at how many people ask about it...)
