    Description

    Marilyn Monroe Very Rare 'Salesman Sample' Calendar (1956). From the personal files of Bob Baruck, a salesman who sold the now infamous nude calendars in the San Fernando Valley for a short amount of time in the mid-1950s; this one for the year 1956, featuring four color pin-up images of MM attached by spiral binding at the top, first image is 'Golden Dreams' but "With Lace Overprint " (and re-titled "Entrancing"); other three images show MM in three different poses (from the same photo session) as she wears red shorts, a red cowboy hat, and white cowboy boots (but no top!); included with its fun original die-cut envelope (simulating a hole to 'peep in' on MM) reading in part "Marilyn / Monroe / The Most / Talked of / Calendar / In the World" along with other 'of the era' text related to MM printed on the back; consigned to this auction directly by Baruck's daughter. (Please note the calendar and envelope are slightly yellowed due to age.)
    14" x 8 1/2"

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
