A group of images of Marilyn Monroe from the mid-1950s.<br />
<br />
A trove of rare and never-seen-before snapshots of Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe have emerged for sale from the collection of a superfan who spent years following the star.<br />
<br />
The collection of 183 pictures of the pin up were all taken around New York in the mid-1950s by superfan James Collins, a teenager who was a member of the 'Monroe 6'.<br />
<br />
The youngsters were such avid fans Monroe ended up knowing them all by name and allowed them special access to her to take countless photos and signed numerous autographs.<br />
<br />
Collins is now auctioning the 183 photos in 18 lots through Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas.
