The auction house announced on Twitter, 'A get-well greeting card from Marilyn Monroe’s father, Stanley C. Gifford, sold for $31.250.
The Blonde Bombshell’s father, Stanley C. Gifford, proved via DNA testing that subject of the upcoming documentary Marilyn's final secret.
The greeting card is a material artifact that establishes a connection or communication between Gifford and his famous daughter Marilyn.
Gifford began before the card’s pre-written greeting, 'This cheery little get-well note comes especially to say a lot of thoughts and wishes to are with you every day.'
With a little prayer, ‘Gifford ended his own words before singing the card, Stanley Gifford, Red Rock Dairy Farm, Hemet, Calif.'
Scott Fortner, a Monroe historian and co-host of the All Things Marilyn podcast, said he discovered the card purely by chance while preparing for the auction.
