STELLA SOTTOLONE-CREHAN COLLECTION OF THE PHILADELPHIA FAN CLUB PRESIDENT, 1940's

This page is dedicated to the memory of one of Frank's greatest fans,Stella. She would follow Frank around if he were anywhere within a 200 mile radious of Philly. And even traveled to LA to visit with him. She took 'hundreds' of photos of him. And he would autograph them the next time they were togeather. I am fortunate to have obtained the entire collection of not only Franks autographs. But Louis Prima, Johnny Mercer, Buddy Rich, Jo Stafford, and Gene Krupa. Just to name a few. Again the items I offer are genuine...I do not have COA or any of that paper work that is merely the opinion of the seller..This stuff comes from serious 'collectors' collections. Not all the items have images, so please ask for VIDEO E-mail to view, I'd be happy to do that for you. Stella's photo may be viewed in the booklet with the "FRANK SINATRA THE VOICE THE COLUMBIA YEARS 1943-1952" A six record set.. In the photo looking from Franks left,she is in full view, front row, staring with a school girl glow. You can't miss her. I'll post the picture when I can. Now,please enjoy this collection.
