    A Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio-Related Receipt, 1961.
    From 'Goldfarb's Flowers-Gifts' in New York City, dated "5/5/61," outlining DiMaggio's order for "2 Dz red roses / long stem" to be delivered to MM at the "Beverly Hills Hotel" with the card to read "Love Joe," order totaling "$27.99;" also included is a 1950s-era business card from Bergdorf-Goodman that was in DiMaggio's files.
    4" x 5" and 3 1/2" x 2"

    DiMaggio famously sent roses to Marilyn's crypt in Westwood, California for over 20 years, but these ones were obviously delivered during happier times.
