c1940s Spencer Tracy Ink Signed 5×7 Movie Studio Fan Photo

Sold at Auction See More Auction Results
We sold this item at auction for $113
 in September 2019.

This vintage movie studio fan photo has been autographed and inscribed by Spencer Tracy. Measuring just 5″ x 7″, photos like these were printed in the millions by the studios to send to fans who wrote in requesting autographs of their favorite stars.

Most often, these small photos will bear pre-printed, stamped or secretarial signatures, but occasionally some are genuinely signed.

The photo was consigned to our auction as part of a large collection of movie star autographs collected by a woman who worked in the motion picture industry during the 1940s. She befriended many of the major stars of the day and managed to collect quite a few in-person autographs.

Typically these vintage movie star fan photos only have a low value at auction; depending on the actor or actress featured, such photos tend to sell anywhere between $2 – $50 each. While this fan photo of Spencer Tracy sold at auction for $113 due to its relatively small size, a larger 8″x10 size photo with a quality inscription and authenticated Spencer Tracy signature can sell for several hundred dollars at auction.

Serious collectors of celebrity autographs will usually prefer larger sized signed photos rather than these small promo pieces, but the fan photos are a great entry level into collecting classic movie star autographs.
