    Description

    Wanted. Dead for the Murder of Clifford Glover.
    8.5" x 11"
    Queens, New York; 1978

    A "home-made" wanted poster for New York police officer Thomas Shea. Includes photographs of Shea and 10-year-old Clifford Glover. In the left lower corner is handwritten text, providing Shea's physical description and address.

    Clifford Glover was killed by Officer Shea on April 28, 1973. Glover and his stepfather were stopped for questioning because they matched the description of recent cab robbers. When they ran, Clifford was shot at least twice and mortally wounded. Shea claimed that he had fired upon the boy because he had pointed a gun at him. In reality, Glover had not had a weapon. Following the shooting, there were riots in the South Jamaica neighborhood of New York. Thomas Shea was indicted, but was found not guilty of murder.

    Condition: Toning around edges, with slight chipping and paper loss at corners. There are a few small spots of soiling, else good.

    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.
