RR Auction Marilyn Monroe Signed Oversized Portrait

22 Apr

RR Auction Marilyn MonroeLovely unique vintage matte-finish 8.75 x 13 photo, affixed to a 12 x 18 mount, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint “To John, My friend and loyal fan, Marilyn.” Collector’s notation on reverse reads, “January 8, 1955, New York City.” In very good condition, with a couple of repaired tears and creases to right edge (one affecting the word “fan”), signature and inscription a shade or two light, and a couple small spots to her neck. Accompanied by a photocopied 1988 letter from John W. Reilly stating this “is a photograph taken by myself personally, and that the signature which appears on it is a true and authentic signature of Marilyn Monroe written by her in my presence.” A fantastic and almost certainly unique portrait of the Hollywood icon. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
