    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Signed Color Snapshot, 1955. An original print with a glossy finish, depicting the star inside the Gladstone Hotel in NYC (where she briefly lived) wearing a black gown, black gloves, and a white fur coat (with two men seen in the background), signed almost illegibly in blue fountain pen ink in the upper right "Marilyn Monroe," verso has stamp reading in part "This is a / Kodacolor Print / ...Week Ending Mar. 12, 1955;" from the personal collection of James Collins, one of the 'Monroe Six' -- the group of young kids who followed Marilyn around NYC so often that the star ended up knowing them all by name and allowing them special access to her (like letting them take countless pictures and giving them numerous autographs). (Please note much of signature is invisible as the pen MM was using evidently ran out of ink.)
    3 1/2" x 3 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!
