Julien's Marilyn Monroe bra sale represents 89% return

Julien's Auctions' Hollywood Legends sale was highlighted by the auction of Marilyn Monroe's bra from Some Like It Hot this weekend (April 5-6), with the piece selling for $28,125.

The sale demonstrates the huge power of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia at auction, after Paul Fraser Collectibles sold another of her bras for �9,500 ($14,558) just 18 months ago - that's an 89.5% increase in value.

There are very few investments that can boast that sort of return in such a short space of time.

Monroe's memorabilia has continued to appreciate in value over the years since her death, with the PFC40 Autograph Index showing a 128.8% increase for a signed photograph of the star between 2000 and 2012, a 6.1% increase per annum.

We have a fantastic selection of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia for sale so you can harness this incredible selling power, including some stunning signed photographs and her exceedingly rare high school photo.
