Another super rare item from Robert Taylor’s Vincent Price collection is this baby shoe from 1911. Robert was able to purchase a number of items directly from the Price family. This is one. Here is what Robert had to say about this shoe…

Vincent Price’s baby shoe from 1911.  His dad, VLP Sr., wrote in Vinnie’s baby book that on the way to his baptism, little Vincent kicked off one of his baby shoes and though they all searched high and low, even retracing their path through the city, the missing shoe never turned up again!  The remaining one was saved, though, and spent many decades pressed flat in the baby book until rediscovered in 2007 and returned to a three-dimensional state.
