The Wizard of Oz MONOPOLY autographed 18 cast members classic board game RARE
This is a one-of-a-kind autographed "Wizard of Oz" MONOPOLY collector's edition (from 1998). The Wizard of Oz Monopoly boardgame set is unused and opened only to be autographed by eighteen yes 18! Cast members from the classic film. The box cover has been autographed by Jerry Maren (the Lollipop Guild munchkin) who added "Good Luck" above his signature. The late Harry Monty (portrayed a Winged Monkey) signed on the front as well. Both men also signed inside on the actual fold-out board. The board features the signatures of Maren, Monty, and the following additional midgets who portrayed Munchkins: Karl Slover (Munchkin trumpeter), Meinhardt Raabe (coroner), Mickey Carroll (town crier), Margaret Pellegrini (villager and sleepyhead), Ruth Duccini (villager), and Clarence Swensen (soldier). The following actresses from the Emerald City scene signed the board: Lois January, Dona Massin, and Dorothy Barrett. The following child-Munchkins autographed the board: Priscilla Montgomery, Betty Ann Cain, Ardith Dondanville, Valerie Shepard, and Elaine Merk. Also signed is Caren Marsh Doll, stand-in for Judy Garland on the film and Ambrose "Amby" Schindler, the stunt-double for Tin Man Jack Haley.
All cast members signed in vibrant permanent marker pens boldly and beautifully. The entire game is in excellent to near-mint condtion. All of the playing pieces are in unopened packaging, all included. This fantastic piece was autographed for me, in person, over the past dozen years or so.
This comes from the collection of Stephen Cox, author of the book The Munchkins of Oz. A letter of provenance available for the purchaser. Mega-RARE piece of Oz history, absolutely unique and amazing. There is only one of these in the world. Please check out my other memorabilia auctions...
