    Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio Autographs. On January 14, 1954 Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were wed at San Francisco City Hall. Since both had been previously married, they were not allowed to marry in the Catholic church. According to the original owner of this lot, on the way to their honeymoon home in Beverly Hills the following day, the couple stopped at the Motel Inn in San Luis Obispo where Nancy Lee Albright attended to the newlyweds in the restaurant. (The Motel Inn is believed to be the first "motel" in the U.S.) The two were only married for nine months and this autograph obtained on January 15, 1954, is one of very few known to exist from their honeymoon, and one of the few featuring both signatures. It is in excellent condition with only faint wear to the edges and corners and two very small stains, neither of which affect the signatures. Also included is an 8" x 10" black-and-white photo of the couple. With COA from PSA/DNA.
