(Fox News) – A rare handwritten note from Charles Stanley Gifford,
who was recently proven to be
Marilyn Monroe’s father, is going
up for auction.

More than 175 items associated with the Hollywood icon will be headlining the upcoming "Julien’s Auctions and TCM Present:
Icons & Idols Hollywood," which will be held both in person and
online next month.

"This card is the only known material artifact that establishes
any connection or communication between Gifford and his
famous daughter," read a release. According to the auction
house, it is believed the card was hand-delivered by Gifford to
Monroe while she was hospitalized.

Scott Fortner, who owns the world’s largest private collection of Monroe’s possessions, said he discovered the card "purely by
chance." The historian and co-host of the "All Things Marilyn"
podcast is considered to be an authority on Monroe and assists
major auction companies in authenticating and verifying
memorabilia.
