BOSTON, MASS.- A rare Heath Ledger signed photo sold for $10,236, according to Boston-based RR Auction.

The color satin-finish photograph of Ledger in his Oscar-winning role as the Joker in the 2008 film The Dark Knight, is signed and inscribed, "To Daniel, Big smile! Heath."

Ledger received numerous posthumous nominations and awards for the Dark Knight, including an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and a Golden Globe for the same category.

"Photos signed by Ledger as the Joker are incredibly rare and highly sought-after by cinephiles and comic book enthusiasts alike," said Bobby Livingston, Executive VP at RR Auction.
