Book signed on the dust jacket by (3) main actors in the Wizard of Oz movie, 1939. Signed "Billie Burke, "Jack Haley," and "Ray Bolger, the Scarecrow of Oz." Billie Burke played Glinda, the Good Witch while Jack Haley played the Tin Man and Ray Bolger, the Scarecrow. NOTE: Billie Burke's signature on any Wizard of Oz piece is extremely rare. She signed only a few pieces during her life time. And to find two other cast member's signatures along with hers on a Wizard of Oz item is almost impossible to find.
The book itself is in good condition. The dust jacket is in good condition for its age with a few small tears and tiny missing pieces. See photos for details.
Signatures have been authenticated and Original Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is included in purchase.
Very Nice Collectible for the Wizard of Oz fan, Billie Burke, Jack Haley, Ray Bolger fan or vintage book collector!
