DS autographs on eBay
« on: July 16, 2017, 11:03:28 PM »
A longtime fan, Randy Vest, sold two pieces of vintage DS memorabilia on eBay this past week. One was a letter from Louis Edmonds, written in the spring of 1971. Due to the impending cancellation of DS, Louis did not feel it was a good time to reactive his fan club. The letter is typed, with an original signature, and sold for $89.00.
The second was a handwritten letter from Clarice Blackburn, written post DS in 1971. Like Louis, she begs off on the idea of having a fan club. She apparently had one during the run of DS but it doesn't seem to have been a positive experience for her. ("Never again!"). She encourages him to watch a certain episode of Where The Heart Is, which was a pivotal episode for her.  The letter sold for $393.00! This does sound kind of high but Clarice is not a common DS autograph. She only attended one festival at the Vista in NYC. She did the cast reunion, taped some interviews and that was it. She did not sign any autographs.

My friend has at least one letter from Clarice that she acquired from the late Robert Finocchio some years ago. It was written back in 1969 and Clarice wrote about her impending return to DS as a new character. But the character was not Minerva Trask. She was going to be the aunt of an unnamed Nancy Barrett character. Obviously, things changed.

That's pretty cool.  Clarice is one of my favorite actresses on the show.  It was such a treat to finally see her in the 1967 CRUCIBLE production, playing opposite Thayer, recently.

Another item, a typed letter from KLS from her days in London, with a bunch of clippings from her performance in Harvey and a signed photo, sold for considerably less than the other two items. A mere $15.50.
