In 1984, Celebrity Prints, Inc. was formed to preserve a bit of entertainment history, on the order of Mann's (the old Grauman's) Chinese Theatre, by taking the footprints and handprints of celebrities and reproducing them for sale, a percentage of which went to the artist. These prints were produced in either concrete or a lightweight plaster, framed in gold. The large prints measured 20 x 20, and each print was signed by the artist and was also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity containing a photo, bio and signature. The small prints measure 10 x 14, and contain a single handprint, plus signature, also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

After taking approximately 200 prints, to include the cast of Dallas, the original Star Trek group, the 70's Dallas Cowboys, broadway greats, etc., it became apparent that the project was costly, slow to reproduce, and difficult to market. Sadly, the project was abandoned. Very few prints were ever made making them very exclusive.

Recently the office building where the prints were stored was sold, and consequently, the contents must be removed. There are Certificates of Authenticity printed up on many artists and some great one-of-a-kind photos, but there were only 20 prints of celebrities.

These are in alphabetical order:

Bruce Boxleitner (l lg) Patrick Duffey (l lg/l sm), Leeza Gibbons (l lg), Linda Gray (1 lg/1 sm), Larry Hagman (1 sm), Ed Jones (1 sm), Martin Jurow (1 am), Leonard Katzman (1 lg), Steve Kanaly (l lg/1 sm), Walter Koenig (2 sm), Tom Landry (1 sm), June Lockhart (1 lg), Jock Mahoney (1 lg), Mary Martin (2 lg), Lee Meriwether (1 lg), George Takei (1 sm), Patrick Wayne (1 lg) and Danny White (1 lg). Some of these prints are framed, some are not.

Value: $300-Up.
