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! From the collection of the producer Sol Seigel and the film "Gentleman Prefer Blondes." If I am reading the label correctly, this is TAKE 9 of the song.MB $1,000

3. Dolly Parton — "Puppy Love / Girl Left Alone" GOLDBAND 1086M- Her FIRST record!!! Ultra rare with less than ten known copies and almost NEVER for sale at any price! Tons of repros out there but this is the real deal! MB $3,000

4. Bonnie Jo Mason aka CHER — "Ringo, I Love You / Beatle Blues" ANNETTE 1000 • M- SUPER SCARCE STOCK COPY (the Promo shows up once in a while) and in gorgeous condition! Produced by PHIL SPECTOR and BEATLES related!!! MB $350

5. Jayne Mansfield — "Little Things Mean A Lot / That Makes It!" ORIGINAL SOUND # OS-51VG/VG+ The record has wear but it's the PICTURE SLEEVE that counts. With just some minor age spots, this one's in nice shape! First copy I've ever had!MB $500

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. Sheriff Tardo was later convicted of Attempted Murder after pipe-bombing his successor, blowing off several of his toes . . . making the title a bit ironic. Years later, his successor also went to jail for bribery. MB $300
