Start spreading the news: Ol' Blue Eyes may be gone, but Frank Sinatra's charm lives on in the memorabilia—from photographs to dolls to lighters—collected by those who are glad the Chairman of the Board did it his way.
Given his connection to Las Vegas, where he performed countless times both as a solo artist and with the Rat Pack, it's probably not too surprising that Sinatra's Vegas-related collectibles are in high demand. Poker chips are particularly popular, especially vintage ones from the 1950s.
Sinatra is also remembered for the films he starred in, from musicals such as “High Society” and “Guys and Dolls” to dramas like “The Manchurian Candidate” and “From Here To Eternity,” which earned him an Academy Award. Movie posters and lobby cards advertising such films make terrific additions to any Sinatra collection.
But it’s his music and voice—indeed, he was “The Voice” for many—that most people come back to again and again. Sinatra began his recording career in 1939, but the vinyl records he cut for Columbia in the 1940s and Capital Records in the 1950s are the ones fans look for today. One of his most enduring LPs is “In the Wee Small Hours,” which was released by Capital in 1955 and featured lush arrangements by Nelson Riddle.
