Internet auctioneer eBay will be looking for more
than the usual exposure when it combines with its real world auction arm,
Butterfields, to auction
a series of five nude Marilyn Monroe photographs online in March.


Gartner Group analyst Robert Labatt told the E-Commerce Times that the Monroe auction will likely be a no-lose situation for eBay and Butterfields.
"It can't fail, because the PR spin that's been generated is achieving the objective of having more people aware of this sale, regardless of whether the sale is achieved over the Internet or not," Labatt said.

Wow...interesting. I would like to have someone tell me how to get in touch with Catherine Williamson, director of entertainment memorabilia for Butterfields as I have a Rare Poster size original Kodak photo of Marilyn Monroe for sale and would like to see how I go about selling it to interested people. If possible, please have someone contact me via email at walliscj@hotmail.com. Thank you.
