Filmdom's favorite knuckleheads are back, with this diverse offering of Three Stooges items. For more than 50 years, the Stooges provided fans with the best brand of slapstick comedy the world has ever known. Headed by a Moe Howard signed check and a starter set of 1959 Fleer cards, this exciting selection is collecting gold.

Featured are:

Moe Howard signed ("9") City National Bank of Beverly Hills check #1718 (VG-EX). Dated 12/6/62, this check is made out to "Mrs. Paul Howard", the wife of Moe's son, and there is a reference at the top left corner that reads "DeRita 1st T.D. In Trust 1 month". Both Moe's son Paul and his wife have endorsed on the reverse. Auction LOA from JSA.

Adrian Booth signed ("9-10") 8x10 photo from the 1939 Three Stooges short "Three Sappy People" (NM+) with deference to trimmed bottom border. Born Virginia Pound, Booth began her acting career as Lorna Gray, and changed her name to Adrian Booth in 1945. She married actor David Brian in 1949, and this photo is signed with her married name Adrian Booth Brian, along with the personalization "To Ellen, Blessings". No authentication due to time/cost restraints.

Shemp Howard 16x24 photo print on poster paper stock, with 4" tape repair on left edge, otherwise presents VG details. A Major Enterprises letter affixed to the reverse states that this is a limited series print of a 1930 studio portrait from Shemp's personal photo collection that was never published. 

1959 Fleer The Three Stooges (46) cards all with white backs, including a starter set of (43/96) with #3 Larry presents VG+ details with deference to a very small nip of loss on the top right corner; and (3) duplicates also with #3 Larry (GD). The balance of the starter set ranges (80% EX to NM, 20% lesser) with card numbers: 5, 6, 9, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 26, 31, 33, 35, 37, 38, 41, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 58, 59, 63, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 73, 74, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 90, 91 and 95. The (2) duplicate cards are both (VG-EX+) with numbers: 18 and 20.
