Finest Collection of Hollywood Signed Photographs at Auction

Bidding is currently open for the Tom Gregory collection of signed Hollywood photographs at RR Auction. The collection is considered the finest ever assembled. Online bidding continues through Thursday, December 15.

Gregory, a film producer and news commentator, began collecting Hollywood glamour photographs when he was only four years old, after stumbling across a box of photographs in his grandmother's house. As he grew older, and his monetary means increased, Gregory followed the oft-repeated collector's advice of "buy the best copy you can afford," gradually assembling a world-class collection of signed Hollywood photographs of stars in classic roles.

Highlights, all signed, include a Greta Garbo photo inscribed to Eva von Berne, Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Boris Karloff as Frankenstein, a variety of silent film stars and directors, Fatty Arbuckle, and an oversized portrait of James Dean from East of Eden.
