Farrah Fawcett’s credit card fetches $2,125 at auction

Jay MacDonald

Forgive me, but I’ve just returned from the seventies on a cloud of Paco Rabanne with the results of last week’s auction of “Charlie’s Angels” actress Farrah Fawcett’s memorabilia. As Charlie would say, “Gather ’round, angels. We’ve got a case to discuss.”
I was curious to learn the financial fate of Fawcett’s American Express Platinum card, which was one of 50 lots put up for bid at Heritage Auctions in Dallas by her nephew, Greg Walls.
Turns out, the platinum girl’s platinum card, signed in blue ink on the reverse and set to expire in November 2010, 15 months after her death from cancer at age 62, sold for $2,125. Not bad, considering it lacked any image of the Speedo-clad poster girl of choice for teenage boy dens of the day.

Farrah Fawcett’s AmEx card seeks Angel investor

Jay MacDonald

How much would you pay for a credit card once wielded by Farrah Fawcett, the platinum-maned bombshell best known as perky private eye Jill Munroe on TV’s original "Charlie’s Angels"?

Fawcett’s American Express Platinum card is among a dozen or so personal items of the late actress-model-poster girl put up for auction Friday at Heritage Auctions in Dallas by her nephew, Greg Walls. The platinum girl’s platinum card, signed in blue ink on the reverse, lists Fawcett as a member since 1978 with an expiration date of November 2010, 15 months after her death from cancer at age 62.

"That was probably her card at the time she died," Chuck Jennings told me upon hearing the news. The Carmel, Ind., lawyer and board member of the American Credit Card Collectors Association then passed the breaking news along in an email blast to the association’s members.
