An autograph, apparently the real deal

When it comes to Carole Lombard autographed items, whether on photos or as standalones, it's always good to enter with a dose of skepticism. So many charlatans are out there passing off phony material.

But I felt pretty confident about this one, and such optimism was confirmed by comments from Lombard and autograph expert Carole Sampeck. "But it's not in her trademark green [fountain-pen] ink!" some of you may think. Here's Sampeck's retort regarding this:

"NO, she did NOT always sign in green ink. Have got blue ink (on some notes and letters) and black on a few contracts."

She also called it a "Great clear signature -- excellent contrast."

As might be expected, this item will cost you a bit -- $1,200, though you can make an offer.
