Blue necktie, signed by an impressive group of more than 30 jazz musicians, including: Dexter Gordon, Dizzie Gillespie, Buck Clayton, Count Basie, Wendell Culley, Roy Eldridge, Russell Procope, Andy Downes, Marshal Royal, Velma Middleton, Milt Mezzrow, Jimmy Hamilton, Wally Bishop, Leo Hampton, Lionel Hampton, Bill Coleman, Ray Nance, Don Byas, Red Richards, Buddy Banks, Nelson Williams, Della Grayson, Lil Armstrong, Gene Sedric, and others. 44 inches (110 cm) long, apparently sized for a child. Some small repairs in black thread; some scattered stains; signatures in varying condition but overall very legible. Due to the difficulty of writing with ballpoint on silk, a number of the signers have written their names in block letters rather than their usual signing styles. Overall very good.
