Vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo of Guevara, in his beret, and Fidel Castro lighting up a cigar, signed and inscribed on the reverse in black ink in Spanish (translated): “Although I don’t like to do this, I can’t refuse to give my signature when a friend like W. M. asks it of me. Che.” Authenticated in Spanish beneath the note: “Certify that the signature is of Che. Aleida March.” Over her signature is the stamping of “Che Centro de Estudios Che Guevara.” Aleida March was married to Che Guevara from 1959 until his death in 1967. She is the head of the Che Guevara Studies Center in Havana. Scattered creasing to image side, some scattered light foxing and creases to reverse, as well as two tape remnants to top corners, and a bit of light spreading of ink to signature and inscription, otherwise very good condition. Guevara signed photos of any size are extremely scarce. We know of no other signed photo that shows Che in his iconic beret or pictures him with Castro.
