Frank Marshall Cases Revisited


Not too long ago I wrote about Frank Marshall and his cases. I found it very interesting and got a few comments.

Now I was pleasantly surprised when I purchased a new Frank Marshall figure for the Ventriloquistcentral Collection to find he came in just the fiberboard case, with great straps to hold it closed, with a leather handle for carrying same and his card affixed to the inside cover, just as was described by our good friend Bob Isaacson.

This case has certainly with stood the sands of time so if you were to have purchased just such a case from Frank it would have certainly protected your investment. it is the only such case I have had a marshall come to me enclosed inside of and I hope you enjoy seeing same.
