Joe DiMaggio's love letter to Marilyn Monroe has sold for $78,125 (€63,500) at a Beverly Hills auction.

The letter, written by the New York Yankees baseball star after Monroe announced she was divorcing him, was sold to an undisclosed buyer.

The letter during their brief, volatile marriage in 1954 was among 300 items, dubbed "Marilyn Monroe's Lost Archives," that went on the block. A handwritten letter from Monroe to her third and final husband, playwright Arthur Miller, sold for $43,750 (€36,000).
