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.
