Superb vintage pearl-finish 8 x 10 Sinclair Bull portrait photo from Judy’s very first MGM sitting, taken on November 30, 1935, when Garland was just 13 years old. Signed in fountain pen in the lower right corner, “Judy Garland.” Reverse bears the original MGM press release caption noting, “She is being hailed as the sensational child discovery of the year and is under long term contract…said to be the only player ever signed without the formality of a screen test.” In fine condition, with a couple trivial corner tip dings. This exact photo was featured in a 2008 Garland signature study in Autograph Magazine. This image represents one of the earliest known official signed portraits of Garland, and would be the pinnacle for any serious Garland collector. Pre-certified PSA/DNA
