    Description

    William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody and Johnny Baker: An Important Poster Dating from Baker's Attempt to Continue Buffalo Bill's Show after His 1917 Death. "Let my show go on," Cody declares. Great image of Baker on horseback, identified as "Col. Cody's Foster Son, the New Leader of the Real Wild West." This is a one-day event poster for a Boston performance which featured, as an added attraction, legendary boxer Jess Willard. Very little material has survived from Baker's brief, unsuccessful effort, and this is a poster never-before-seen by longtime Buffalo Bill Historical Center Curator Paul Fees. Excellent condition with fine original fold lines as issued. Nicely custom-framed to 63.5" x 23.5". From the Collection of the Late Edward C. Gillette.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
