Alluring beyond comprehension, Marilyn Monroe was America’s sweetheart by popular consensus, and specifically, the object of affection for Arthur Miller, Joe DiMaggio, Marlon Brando, John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy (to name a few). The screen goddess’ appeal and untimely passing have made her autograph one of the most coveted in the circle of Hollywood collectibles. This particular example is a potential cornerstone to any high-end collection! Framed to 17-3/4 x 24-5/8”, a check drawn from the Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc. account bears the sultry starlet’s exceedingly scarce penning. Dated “April 1 1960,” the voucher is made out to a telephone answering service (perhaps to handle that lengthy list of gentlemen callers) and signed by Monroe (d.1962) in black ink (“8-9” strength). Full photo LOA from JSA.
Accenting the display is a color photograph (10-1/2 x 13-1/2” visible area) of Monroe. Standard cancelation stampings and hole punchings do not affect Monroe’s magnificent signature.
