Type of Autograph documents
Expert comment Signatures by Greta Garbo are rare because she refused to sign autographs or answer the nearly fifteen thousand letters a week she received at the height of her career. Another fact is that Garbo didn`t like checks because many payees did not cash those checks because they treasured her signature. This exasperated Garbo because these outstanding checks complicated the balancing of her checking account. Consequently, she had friends pay for purchases then reimbursed them with a check knowing it would be cashed.
