Clark Gable and Carole Lombard were photographed together thousands, if not tens of thousands, of times during their courtship and marriage. And it seems as if quite of few of these images appear in two sets of clipping packages now up for auction at eBay. These were bought from the estate of Kay Gable, and I’m guessing she got these from a fan somewhere along the line.

Here’s a glance at the first set, along with some highlights:

This set has plenty of pics of the couple; here are two examples:


There’s even a page of Gable portraits from various times in his career:

Bidding begins at $29.99, with the auction closing at 7:16 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday. Bid or learn more (and see additional clippings) at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CLARK-GABLE-CAROLE-LOMBARD-Photographs-Pictures-Scrapbook-Magazine-Art-Clips-/281705580336?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4196f60730.

Now to the second set:

For me, the highlight of this collection is the “Rumors About Me!” story written by Elizabeth Wilson, a close fanmag friend of Carole’s. It’s from a March 1942 publication, which means it had just gone to press at the time of Lombard’s death:


This one has a slightly higher starting bid ($32.99), with the auction ending at 7:41 p.m. (Eastern) next Thursday.
