The couple were in South Dakota, far from the glamour of Hollywood, to pursue pheasant in October 1941. Now a rare souvenir of their sojourn has been put up for auction at eBay -- the migratory waterfowl coupons they needed by law, signed by Clark and Carole.

Something this rare (and in very fine condition) won't come cheaply -- the minimum bid is $250 -- but you have time to scrape your dollar bills, as the deadline for bids isn't until 5:31 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday. Interested, or curious? Then go visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/FRAMED-1941-MIGRATORY-WATERFOWL-STAMPS-CLARK-GABLE-CAROLE-LOMBARD-AUTOGRAPHS-/281135626141?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4174fd379d if you want to "bag" this artifact.
