    Geronimo: Signature on Card from Pan-American Exposition with Geronimo's Story of His Life Book. A bold pencil signature on a 3" x 2.375" calling card for "Mrs. M. A. Cleveland". It was lightly tipped in (now loose) to the free front endpaper of a first edition of the biography edited by S. M. Barrett, Geronimo's Story of His Life (New York" Duffield & Company, 1906). On that endpaper is written: "Milo Cleveland/ Brockport/ N.Y." at top and "Signed by Geronimo/ and given to father/ at Buffalo Exposition" beneath where the signature has been. This Buffalo Exposition was a World's Fair held in Buffalo, New York, from May 1 to November 2, 1901, now usually called the Pan-American Exposition. This was one of the major expos that Geronimo participated in where people paid to see him and get his autograph. The book is heavily-illustrated and in very good condition. The signature card is lightly soiled with bumped corners, perfect for display.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
