Description


Outstanding vintage glossy 8 x 10 photo of Monroe showing off her shapely silhouette, signed and inscribed in thick ink, “To 82nd Fighter Sqdn, Warmest wishes, Marilyn Monroe.” In very good condition, with overall bends, creases, and soiling, many tack holes to borders and corners, small tears and paper loss to two corner tips, and a noticeable stain to the right of the inscription. Monroe’s good looks made her a favorite among US troops, and she offered her own support to them in return. She famously made a trip to Korea in 1954 to entertain the men stationed overseas, performing as part of the USO show. Her popularity within the military ranks is evident in this photo—it must have been displayed and admired wherever the 82nd went. An exceptionally desirable signed image and important association in American pop culture. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
