Secretary

It seems Clark Gable (1901-1960) was a friendly autograph signer during his life as authentic autograph are not as rare but be careful on secretarial autographs on the market. 

Clark Gable used two slightly different styles to sign official documents and fan autographs.

Signature for official documents like contracts and checks. They are ALLWAYS signed with an open "G"

They are normally only used on 3,5x5,5inch or 4x6inch postcards. The secretary "autographs" must be detected in the prename as Gable is closely done to authentic examples. Clark Gable NEVER underlined his name in full from the C and the "a" in Clark is more written like two small connected "e" in authentic examples.
