The sweater itself was given to Garbo's close friend and confident Sam Green, and has the rare distinction of being featured in several published photographs, as well as in the highly regarded biography Garbo by author Barry Paris. The garment itself is housed in an oversized frame, which features a color photo of Garbo wearing the sweater as well as a signed and notarized letter from Sam Green attesting to the sweater's provenance. Garbo wardrobe is exceptionally hard to come by in today's market, making this unique piece a true rarity. Cataloged and guaranteed by Startifacts.
