Signed, sealed, delivered...for under $100?

It could well happen. As of this writing, it's possible that someone could wind up with an autograph of Carole Lombard for under $100. Not bad value, if you can get it. Even if it goes into the low triple digits, it's still a definite beargain, given Carole's popularity and the demand for her signature.

I suppose you wish to see just what I'm talking about. And so you shall:

It looks to be the real deal, judging from what I know about Lombard's signature.

According to the seller, this was from an autograph book of Archie Marshek (1902-1992), a longtime film editor who was also a production assistant on "King Kong." His credits at the Internet Movie Database don't include any Lombard films, but that doesn't inherently invalidate this autograph, as Carole had friends throughout the industry.

The seller says it's 4 1/2" x 6" and in excellent condition.

Only one bid -- of $99 -- has been made as of this writing; however, bidding is slated to close at 7:10 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday night. If it interests you, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/CAROLE-LOMBARD-SIGNED-VINTAGE-ALBUM-PAGE-FROM-THE-40s_W0QQitemZ110478635336QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item19b90a3148.

(Note: Bidding has since ended on this item, which sold for $198.50 -- slightly more than twice the amount of the initial bid.)
