Yesterday’s entry included a Carole Lombard memorabilia item from an eBay seller known as “baseballguy1.” He’s currently selling three other Lombard pics, and here they are — beginning with this jovial shot of Carole, Clark Gable and Garson Kanin, who directed Lombard in “They Knew What They Wanted” (and lusted after her in a nice way, as he noted in his delightfully vivid memoir “Hollywood”). That film didn’t come out until the fall of 1940, and this image from RKO is listed as being from 1939, so I’m guessing this was taken early in the production process.

This vintage rarity is 8″ x 10″. The minimum bid is $9.99, and bids close at 8:14 p.m. (Eastern) Friday. To bid or find out more, go to

The two other baseballguy pics aren’t quite as rare, but are nonetheless stunning. Here’s Lombard with William Boyd and Owen Moore from her first all-talkie, 1929’s “High Voltage,” plus information saying it either was received or printed on July 28 of that year:

The bidding here begins at $8.99, with the auction closing at 8:12 p.m. Friday. Interested? Then visit

Fast-forward to 1935, take Carole out of the cold and into a swimsuit, and you have this sexy, glamorous image, Paramount p1202-1235:

This measures only 7″ x 9″, but a chance to possess a photo showing off Lombard’s luscious figure makes the opening bid price big — as in $19.99. Bidding ends at 8:11 p.m. Friday. All the information for prospective bidders can be seen at
