Clark and Carole's fantastic four

Few couples could light up a room like Carole Lombard and Clark Gable...and four splendid examples of their magnetism are now up for auction at eBay. (It should be noted none are originals, but all are relatively rare.)

We'll start with this stunner, as they stand near the bottom of the staircase at Carole's home on March 30, 1939, ready to announce to the world they indeed are now married. Three bids on this, topping at $20.49, have been made as of this writing, and bidding is set to close at 9:22 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday (the deadline for all four of these pics). You can place your bid by going to http://www.ebay.com/itm/CLARK-GABLE-AND-LOVELY-CAROLE-LOMBARD-CANDID-ENTER-ROOM-8x10-PHOTO-/190926025996?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c7413f50c.

The seller also has available this shot of the couple (the image originally was an AP wire photo), which I'm guessing was taken at a tennis tournament (they appear to be in some sort of VIP box):

No one's yet bid on this, and the minimum is $19.99. Learn more at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CLARK-GABLE-AND-LOVELY-CAROLE-LOMBARD-CANDID-8x10-PHOTO-/190926025948?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c7413f4dc.

This looks like Clark and Carole at the thoroughbred track, one of their favorite pastimes; it's already received two bids as I write this, the higher at $30.49. Care to top it? Then visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/CLARK-GABLE-AND-LOVELY-CAROLE-LOMBARD-AT-THE-RACES-8x10-PHOTO-/190926025858?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c7413f482

Finally, Gable's playing golf, Lombard's looking on, and I have no idea who the club pro is beside them:

It opens at $19.99, as no one's yet deigned to bid on it. However, if you'd like to place one, head over to http://www.ebay.com/itm/CLARK-GABLE-AND-LOVELY-CAROLE-LOMBARD-AT-GOLF-COURSE-CANDID-8x10-PHOTO-/151140451693?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2330ac456d.
