The Year of the Rabbit: The Playboy Auction

UPDATE:  These photos sold for $20,000 at the Christies Auction.

I came across an unbelievable collection of Earl Moran photos featuring Marilyn in an upcoming Christies auction slated for December 8.  The Earl Moran LOT 69 SALE 2367 features 55 gelatin silver prints which are estimated at $20,000 -30,000.  Would sure love to have them but WOW that is some series money.  Some of these photos are featured in low quality in my new Moran gallery.

Thanks to everyone who has responded to the Moran collectors call.  I particularly like seeing Moran art with the real life Marilyn photo.  Hoping to showcase some of this.  If you have any examples send them to MARILYNFAN AT GMAIL.

In particular, I am looking for high quality scans of the following photos, if you can help, let me know.


  1. I have the picture on the left. It's not high quality, but I think it might be a little clearer than the one you have. Would you like me to send it to you?

  2. Thanks very much for the offer. I have one that is bigger than the one posted in this blog. What I am really on the lookout for is a high quality scan.
