Charlie Parker – Twice Signed “I Owe You” From Chan Parker Collection
A printed “I Owe You” receipt filled out and signed twice by Bebop giant Charlie Parker. Dated October 4, 1950, Parker writes his name at the top, prints and writes the amount $10.00, and signs at the bottom, all in blue ink.
This rare twice signed receipt was filled out for Parker’s manager, Teddy Blume, and originally sold by Parker’s widow Chan at the Christie’s, London sale of Charlie Parker memorabilia in September 1994. We obtained this receipt from Norman Saks, the foremost Charlie Parker collector in the world. It is pictured in the book “Charlie Parker & Jazz Club Memorabilia: The Norman R. Saks Collection” by Ken Vale.
Also included is an 8″ x 10″ photograph of Charlie Parker, suitable for framing with the I.O.U. With Norman Saks’ signed letter of authenticity, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
