Welcome back to the Profiles & Premiums Newsletter!
We'll be quick this time around, but I do have a new profile for you from Susan M. Kelly and a new Photo ID Guide -- in fact, the items covered in the guide are currently at auction, ending Tuesday night -- details in the Guide below.
I want to draw attention to the blog, as I've been posting more updates than usual lately, plus given it a little face lift.
Also, on the home page of the main site I've added links to each of the Movie Cards & Collectibles contents pages in order to save everyone a click. Check it out in the left column of the home page, you'll see what I mean.
Photo ID Guide:
1934 Dixie Premiums
This new guide features some early Dixie Premiums -- I've had these once before, but must have neglected to create a Photo ID Guide at that time. These are black & white Dixie Premiums, each piece consisting of two pages, both with blank backs.
These are at auction right now, 17 different pieces ending Tuesday night (March 20) -- tonight, if you're reading this the morning that I've sent it. Each lot already has at least one bid, so they'll all be gone after this first offering. Please bid now if you're interested.

As the daughter of a suffragette, individualism was a birthright for Katharine Hepburn. It would become her hallmark throughout life and throughout one of the most successful and storied careers in Hollywood history. This was a woman unafraid to speak her mind despite the consequences and she remained unbowed and unapologetic to the very end.
Katharine was born on May 12, 1907 in Hartford, Connecticut, into a family known for its unique views and from the start she was encouraged to follow her own path, wherever it might lead. A classic tomboy, young Katharine was very close to her brother, Tom. His tragic death, an apparent suicide, when she was just 14, devastated her and she withdrew, becoming quite shy. After years of home schooling, she enrolled at Bryn Mawr College and it was here that she discovered the lure of the stage.
Well, that does it for now. Next month will include a profile on a silent star by Tammy Stone and a new Photo ID Guide. See you then!
