Beautiful find relates to "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." This prize-winning PBS iconic children's show consisted of 895 episodes, all of them hosted by Fred Rogers. The first musical bar of the theme song, "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," of the show is illustrated on the hand-drawn and hand-signed score. Fred Rogers not only created the show, but also wrote the theme song, and more than 200 other songs that were used on the program. At a live public auction, Rogers meticulously inscribed, on his handwritten musical staff, the first eight notes of the show's theme song, and then Rogers signed his name and inscribed ,"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." Roger's musical notation, inscription and signature were then immediately matted and encased in protective plastic wrapping. They have remained in this protective wrap ever since. The musical staff, inscription, and signature are all written in bold, black felt marker. The piece will surely increase in value with the opening of the Sony Pictures' upcoming film, "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," staring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers. Matted at 12x15". Excellent condition. PSA 10 and comes with their LOA.
