The Greatest Detective, Basil Rathbone

Here is a little something outside of my usual area of focus... an album page signed by Basil Rathbone. As you may know, Rathbone is widely considered the definitive Sherlock Holmes.

This was part of an album obtained from a New York City in-person collector from the 1940s and 1950s. As you can see, this was signed on February 12, 1950.



I am a big fan of Holmes, from the original books to the modern interpretations such as Elementary on CBS.

That's awesome! He was a cool guy. I featured his name, Basil, on my baby-naming blog a while back! :)
