    John Wesley Hardin: A Great Display Collection Including an Autographed Playing Card. Hardin was one of the most feared of all the famous Western gunfighters. His violent career came to an abrupt end on August 19, 1895, when he was murdered in the Acme Saloon in El Paso, Texas. The display includes:
    (1) An ace of hearts playing card with three bullet holes, boldly autographed in black ink "J. W. Hardin".
    (2) His rare business card.
    (3) Three poker chips from the Acme Saloon.
    It is hard to imagine a more delightful presentation of this rare and sought-after Western autograph! The frame measures 9.5" x 12".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
