About this Item

Candice's father was America's leading ventriloquist in vaudeville, in films, on radio and on television for over half a century, performing with everyone's favorite dummy, Charlie McCarthy. Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Chicago, Illinois, on February 16, 1973. Near fine. 8-cent "Pharmacy" stamp at upper left. NOT a First Day Cover, but an imaginative collector had this cover cancelled in Bergen's hometown on his 70th birthday from the Chicago Philatelic Center, which used an unusual pictorial cancellation. No distracting recipient's name/address -- but Bergen signs exceptionally large, bold and attractive in blue fountain pen on the "sweet spot." Small portion of original transmittal envelope present. Accompanied by a superb 10" X 8" modern glossy photograph, a film scene showing a suspicious Bergen and Charlie McCarthy (dressed as a detective) eyeballing a comely young lady who's wooing a smitten Mortimer Snerd.
