Sopranos Multi Cast Signed Grail 11 Autographs Incl David Chase JSA Letter COA
In my opinion, one of the best autographed Sopranos pieces out there. This is from my personal collection, I obtained all the autographs myself. It includes only the main cast or as I like to say "both families" only.
The item is a 2 page advertisement (21"x14") from a trade magazine congratulating the Sopranos on the 1st season (I actually bought this item on ebay more than 20 years ago).
After I got it, I went to Silvercup Studios in Astoria, Queens around 4 am on the day they were filming. It was still dark out, but trailers and lights lit up the whole street. Edie came walking out of a trailer, and she was the 1st to sign it. I also got James and Jamie that day.
Thanks to an HBO employee, I found out that the premiere for the new season was taking place at the Ziegfield theater in NYC the following week. On the red carpet, I got Bracco, Imperioli, Pastore, Van Zandt, Sirico.
The after party was a few blocks away and I ended up getting Rob, and none other than David Chase, who was just standing on the sidewalk waiting to get in. Nancy Marchand did not show up to the premiere and passed away shortly after. I missed Dominic as he was getting into a limo.
About 10 years later, I saw that Dominic was doing a signing at Chiller Theater in NJ, so I went and added what would be the final name to the piece.
I kept it safely stored away for more than 15 years, and recently got it authenticated by JSA with a full letter, notarized and signed by James Spence.
It has been professionally framed and matted in non-acidic UV protective glass. The frame measures 23x30 and is ready to display.
All 11 autographs have been hand signed
Steve Van Zandt
