Monroe's check was written entirely in her hand just as the romance between her and DiMaggio began! The two American icons' relationship captured the hearts and attention of the entire nation. When they met, Monroe was becoming the siren of Hollywood movies, and “Yankee Clipper” DiMaggio had already been labeled the greatest baseball player of all time. Though the marriage would last only nine months, their brief passionate romance and enduring bond continue to fascinate.
