About this Item

"Uncle Miltie," a prolific comedian who began in vaudeville and became America's top television personality with "The Milton Berle Show" (1948-56). Signed Postal Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled at New York, NY, on July 12, 1973. Near fine. 5-cent "Voice of America" stamp and 3-cent "Francis Parkman American Historian" stamps at upper right. NOT a First Day Cover, but an imaginative collector had this cover cancelled on Berle's 65th birthday (he was born July 12, 1908) in the city of his birth (New York, NY). No decorative cachet at left; no distracting recipient's name/address -- but right on the "sweet spot" Berle signs bold and large (4¼"!) in black fineline. Given Berle's early popularity as a radio figure, the "Voice of America" stamp makes this an appropriate cover. Small portion of original transmittal envelope present. Accompanied by a 4½" X 7" glossy color postcard reproduction of the front cover (featuring his caricature) of the 1948 paperback printing of his 1945 book "Out of My Trunk.".
