Madonna's yearbook goes under the hammer

A school yearbook with a picture of Madonna before she was famous has emerged from one of the star’s former classmates.
The snap shows the fresh-faced teen with dark air and Madge’s unmistakeable features.
Beneath the photo of the future pop star is her name - Madonna Ciccone.
She signed the back of the West Junior High School book to her pal Nancy.
The future Queen of Pop wrote: “Dear Nancy, I hope you have fun at Adams and all the years to come, Madonna “76”.”
It is unclear what the “76” refers to, but Adams is the name of the high school in Rochester that Nancy went on to.
The book was published at the end of the 1971-1972 school year, when Madonna was 13 or 14 and leaving her high school in Michigan, US.
Now it is expected to fetch up to £1,500 pounds when it goes under the hammer at Christie’s auction house in London.
Also in the sale are a pair of boxer shorts worn by Madonna in the 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan and they are expected to fetch £800.
Helen Hall, from the saleroom, said: “I think it is very rare for one of the yearbooks from Madonna’s junior high school with her in it to come on the market. I have never seen one before.
“It is very far removed from rock ’n’ roll and shows someone who is rather young and innocent.
“It looks like Madonna has dark hair and the camera clearly liked her from an early age and shows the signs of the star she was to become.
“There are huge Madonna fans all over the globe and there is a big market.”
The auction takes place on June 12.
