what is the value of her autograph.She would at Rock Springs, AZ

It has long been speculated on, just what caused her kidney failure, leading to her death from uremic poisoning. Many thought it was a beating across the kidneys by her husband, Paul Bern. Others said it was a botched abortion. I just recently read that jean suffered a bout with rheumatic fever when she was a child. It settled in her kidneys and this is what caused her premature death at 26.

The photo of her is awful, can`t it be replaced with something that shows her real beauty?
