    William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody Choice Signature World-famous frontiersman and showman, joined the Pony Express at age 14 and served as a scout for the Union Army during the Civil War. Later, Cody supplied meat for the Kansas Pacific Railroad by killing 4,280 buffalo (his own count), thus earning his nickname. Writer Ned Buntline featured Buffalo Bill in a series of cheap novels and, in 1872, Cody appeared in a stage play. He decided to capitalize on this fame by organizing "Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show." With himself as the star and with other talented marksmen and riders such as Annie Oakley, it featured a mock battle with Indians. The show toured before appreciative audiences throughout America and Europe for 30 years. Financial troubles closed the show in 1913, but he continued performing for others almost to his death. Offered here is a choice ink signature, "W. F. Cody, 'Buffalo Bill'" on an off-white 3.5" x 2.5" card, fine condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
