Current mood: amused
Even though it’s technically not of “Carole Lombard” at all, but her Czech alter ego of sorts, “Carola Lombardova.” It’s said to be 8 x 11 cm, which would make it 3.15″ x 4.33″ — far smaller than the image you see on your desktop. (And no, I haven’t the faintest clue what the “96” in the lower right-hand corner means; I’m going to guess it’s part of a numbered series.)
The image appears to be from between 1935 and 1937, but that doesn’t necessarily coincide with the actual age of the card.
As of this writing, you have two ways to acquire this card being offered at eBay: You can purchase it outright for $29, or you can place a bid beginning at $22. In the latter case, the auction will end at 12:18 p.m. (Eastern) on Tuesday.
