Frank Sinatra's first Jersey license up for sale
By The Associated Press
HOBOKEN, N.J. - Frank Sinatra's first New Jersey driver's license is on the auction block.
The Star-Ledger newspaper reports that the yellowed, text-only 1934 license was issued, typo and all, to Francis Sintra, 841 Garden St., Hoboken, New Jersey.
The license is signed by the 19-year-old Sinatra, whose eyes, of course, are recorded as blue.
It was issued a year before Sinatra got his first big break in the music industry.
Also included is a 1940 letter to the state Commissioner of Motor Vehicles from the lawyer of a man who had been involved in a car crash with Sinatra, insisting that Sinatra's driving privileges be revoked until he pays up.
Bidding had reached at least $2,500 by Tuesday afternoon for the items, which are being sold by RR Auction.
