William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody (February 26, 1846 – January 10, 1917), American soldier, bison hunter and showman, original, vintage, full admission souvenir from "Buffalo Bill's Wild West / Pawnee Bill's Far East" show with facsimile signature.

Cody received his nickname after the American Civil War when he had a contract to supply Kansas Pacific Railroad workers with buffalo meat. He is purported to have killed 4,282 American bison (commonly known as buffalo) in eighteen months, (1867–1868). Cody and hunter William Comstock competed in an eight-hour buffalo-shooting match over the exclusive right to use the name, in which Cody won by killing 68 bison to Comstock's 48. 

Cody's occupations included Army scout, Union Army soldier, Pony Express rider, ranch hand, wagon train driver, buffalo hunter, fur trapper, gold prospector and showman. He is best known for his 'Buffalo Bill Wild West' shows which provided education and entertainment about bronco riding, handling bovine and equine livestock, roping, and other herdsmen skills seen in present day rodeos.

Original vintage show card approximately 4 x 6 inches. Features facsimile signature. Includes original envelope in which these cards would have been handed out to patrons of Cody's show the color most likely disignating the location of the recipients seats by section.

Provenance: From an orginal previously unopened full box of Cody postcards. Image of orignal box will be included with purchase.
