Hollywood Memorabilia

Movie Memorabilia

Hollywood Memorabilia is a huge collectors market. There is no way you could possibly collect everything for one celebrity, let alone all. Many people collect one actor or genre. You never know when you’ll come across something special to add to your collection.

Being a collector myself (of far too many things… hence, this website), I frequent garage sales. On one such excursion back in the 1980, I came across couple envelopes of 2.25 x 2.25 black and white photo negatives. Being that format and black and white, I figured they were old. When I held them up to the sun they appeared to be some girl in a bikini. I couldn’t make out who it was, but they were cool and a couple bucks, so I bought them.

When I got home I threw them on my light box and took a look through a loupe. Imagine my surprise, and excitement when I saw the face of Marilyn Monroe in one envelope and Jayne Mansfield in the other. I kept them in a drawer for about 30 years. After seeing an episode of Pawn Stars, I remembered I had them. I made a few inquiries and was actually the subject of a CNN report in 2011. Some of those prints are available here.

So, you never know what you may find, and where you may find Hollywood Memorabilia. Keep on looking!
