Monkey Business starring Miss Lois L’oreal! (and look for the blonde bombshell in the sequel The Sixty Year Pitch!)
It’s been locked in a box and stored in a closet for the best part of half a century. But this baseball is expected to fetch at least $20,000 when it is sold at auction
This is no ordinary baseball. Not only is it signed by the New York Yankees baseball team – including legend Joe DiMaggio – it also still bears the lipstick of Marilyn Monroe from when the blonde bombshell kissed it in 1952.
...The ball is one of 15 signed by the 1952 World Champion Yankees, which were then given to the players of a softball team who won a league organised by film studios 20th Century
This particular ball was given to sound editor Eddie D’Orazio and, following his death in 1969, it was passed down to his eldest son.
...Mark Jordan, consignment director for Heritage Auctions which is hosting the sale, added: ‘Let’s just say that this baseball lived a dream shared by countless millions of red-blooded American males, smooched by the definitive blonde bombshell at her most famous.
‘I would say that this thing could mount a substantial challenge for the title of most desirable post-war signed baseball on earth.’
