Francis Wahlgren appraised wanted posters in hotel ledgers featuring Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid during the 2013 ROADSHOW event in Anaheim, California.

Examine a remarkably extensive collection of wanted posters for Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, and many other notorious criminals from over 100 years ago.

In a town outside of Los Angeles, the son of an antique collector gifted three hotel ledger books, pages pasted with old wanted posters from over a hundred years ago, to a ROADSHOW guest. The current owner of the books, having researched their significance over the past 20 years and come up with little information, turned to the expertise of Francis J. Walhgren at the Anaheim ROADSHOW event in 2013. The archive was given an auction estimate of $40,000 to $60,000.
