    Description

    Circa 1954 Joe DiMaggio & Marilyn Monroe Signed Postcard, PSA/DNA Authentic. It is well known within hobby circles that DiMaggio flatly refused to sign any piece related to his former wife Marilyn in the years following her death. While his marriage to this timeless icon of Hollywood glamour was short and painful, she remained very close to his heart even after her untimely passing, which Joe was convinced was orchestrated by the Kennedy family. "They murdered the one person I loved," DiMaggio confided in his friend and attorney Morris Engelberg, as recounted in Engelberg's biography of the Yankee legend. This reluctance to share his love with the world was a major factor in the failure of the marriage, and likewise in the scarcity of any pieces bearing the autographs of both.

    The few dual-signed items in the hobby today derive almost without exception from the pair's brief union, as this postcard from the "Ming Room" in Los Angeles clearly does. DiMaggio signs first, adding a personalization above his autograph. Marilyn simply signs below, the various loops of the autographs remaining linked in a way that their relationship could not. Each signature is 8/10 or better, and the postcard exhibits tape stains at two corners that remain well clear of the writing. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
