Robert Blake, Guitar

Apparently Robert Blake is no longer singing the blues. The 75-year-old actor, acquitted in 2005 of murder by a jury of his peers—did they all really have iconic cop shows?—has listed his beloved, battered Kay guitar for sale on eBay.

For a buy-it-now price of $1,500, you not only get an old guitar worth about $200, but the bankrupt Blake's autograph, personalized for the winning bidder. Imagine the thrill of owning a piece of Hollywood crime history as you sit back and strum the Baretta theme, your hand grazing against the looping words "Good Luck," scrawled by a man who has had some experience with both kinds of luck.
