Description

c.1950, autographed front & back by Sealo – Stanley Berent -- which is pretty amazing considering his short appendages.”Stanislaus "Stanley" Berent was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on November 24, 1899. Sealo is said to have been discovered on a street corner selling newspapers, thus beginning an illustrious 35-year career. Sealo would appear with every major sideshow in the United States. He spent the longest time with Pete Cortes, who shared Sealo's passion for playing cards and was said to spend hours backstage playing rummy with him. He was beloved by his colleagues, who remember him as a smiling and congenial man.” This pitch card is in extremely fine condition with no tears or creases.
