I’m happy to announce that Julien’s Auctions has provided the Marilyn Monroe Collection with five limited edition box set catalogs for the upcoming Marilyn Monroe auction. The catalog box sets, along with other prizes, will be offered as part of the MMC Marilyn Monroe Auction Sweepstakes.
This multi-volume set is housed in a slip case bound with lime green cloth, Marilyn Monroe’s favorite color, and featuring her favorite portrait of herself photographed by Cecil Beaton. The limited edition box set is the essential for the Marilyn Monroe fan, investor, collector, museum and general Hollywood memorabilia collector. The set is one of the most elaborate catalogs ever produced in the auction industry and will be a collector’s item for many years to come. The catalogs give collectors, fans and historians an intimate glance into the personal life and career of Marilyn Monroe, who would have celebrated her 90th birthday this year, with a collection of film worn costumes, personal wardrobe pieces, jewelry, accessories, items from Monroe’s home, personally gifted items and the largest collection of ephemera ever to be offered at auction.
The auction, which will showcase property from the life and career of the screen legend, will be the largest Marilyn Monroe auction ever. This once-in-a-lifetime event will take place this November in Los Angeles. To learn more, click here.
Stay tuned for more details on the MMC Marilyn Monroe Auction Sweepstakes, which will be announced on Wednesday, September 7!
