Marilyn Monroe's Wig to Hit Auction Block

EXCLUSIVE

Marilyn Monroe's blonde wig from her last film, "The Misfits," is about to hit the auction block.

It's the first time in almost 2 decades the mop's been up for grabs. Bidding starts at $10k ... a lot less than the $29.9k it sold for last time around. Heritage Auctions, which is running the show, is counting on $20k minimum.

A lock of Lennon's hair sold for $35k earlier this year ... almost certainly more than MM's fake hair will fetch.

Marilyn's wig has some extras, like 5 ringlets for volume. You also get the original storage box labeled: "United Artists Corporation / The Misfits / Mapes Hotel / Reno, Nevada" and "Hold At Airport For Pick Up" ... so, cool piece of movie history. 

Bidding starts Nov. 12.
