    1948 High School Yearbook Signed by James Dean

    A wonderful piece of history from James Dean's high school! James Dean (1931 - 1955) starred in only three films before his premature death: Rebel Without A Cause, East of Eden, and Giant. This yearbook titled "Black And Gold 1948" contains 64 slick pages published by the Journalism Department of Fairmount High School Fairmount, Indiana. Next to last page is titled "Autographs" with numerous signatures, including Jim "Rack" Dean. Dean earned the nickname "Rack" for helping his uncle rack up the balls at the local pool hall. James Dean appears in several photos, including individual photos and as a member of the basketball team ("made a fine showing on the second team last year and as guard this year on the first"). Most telling, however, is his appearance (in glasses!) in a group photo showing the members of the class play, Our Hearts Were Young and Gay, in which Dean played the role of Otis Skinner. Cover has some dust soil and light wear around edges and has pulled totally loose from insides. Overall cover VG, contents Exc. with nice signature. Limited printing due to the small size of this school. 8 x 10.75 inches softcover with gold foil covers. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La plus third party Letter of Authenticity from JSA.
