Karen & Richard Carpenter autographed photograph

A Karen & Richard Carpenter autographed photograph is a piece of music memorabilia signed by the popular musical duo The Carpenters.

Background information

The Carpenters were one of the best-selling musical acts of the 1970s, with worldwide sales of more than 100 million records.

Consisting of the brother and sister duo Richard and Karen Carpenter, the group’s easy listening style and timeless songwriting led them to achieve 15 number 1 songs on the U.S Adult Contemporary chart and 3 number 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.

The band’s career was cut short by the tragic death of Karen Carpenter in 1983 following complications brought on by her anorexia nervosa. Today they are remembered as one of the greatest musical partnerships of the last 40 years, and their albums and songs remain popular to this day.
