How to bid on my Monthly Auctions

1. Marilyn Monroe — "How Wrong Can I Be / BLANK" ELECTRO-VOX May 19, 1949VG+ Insanely RARE!!! Her very FIRST recording! 12 inch 78 rpm Studio Lacquer disc! Only TWO known copies (the other is in a German Archive) and NEVER released to the public except for twenty seconds of it which was used in the film "The Shape Of Water." This is the RAREST record by Marilyn Monroe and you will never see it for sale again. The other copy, now in Germany, was sold at a big auction house with a $15,000.00 minimum bid. MY copy is more reasonable . . . at least until the bidding starts . . . MB $3,000

2. Marilyn Monroe & Jane Russell — "Little Girl From Little Rock / BLANK" 20th Century Fox # 9 51-52 • M- 12 inch 78 rpm Studio Lacquer disc!

6. Debbie & The Ladds — "Tardo Campaign Song / Vieux Carre" ELECT CYRUS TARDO SHERIFFM- First and only copy I've ever seen!!! This is a great Girl Group record which is actually "These Boots Are Made For Walkin' " turned into a campaign song.
