Evel Knievel brought the spirit of P. Barnum to daredevil motorcycle jumps in the 1970s.
His usual approach was to choose an improbably difficult obstacle (such as the fountains at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas in 1968, or a row of 13 double-decker buses at London's Wembley Stadium in 1975). Then, dressed in his red, white and blue jumpsuit, Knievel would race his motorcycle up a specially-constructed ramp and leap over the obstacle. Often he crash-landed, thrilling viewers while breaking dozens of bones. In 1974 he arranged his most famous stunt, an attempted jump over Idaho's Snake River Canyon in a rocket-powered motorcycle.
The attempt failed when the craft's parachute opened prematurely, but Knievel survived. This piece comes authenticated by Authentic Signings, Inc. And comes with a photo of Evel Knievel signing the piece.
