A collection of more than 300 Bruce Springsteen items is being offered for sale for a mere $7.5 million by memorabilia dealer Moments In Time.
The Ultimate Springsteen Collection includes the leather jacket Springsteen wore on the “Born To Run” album cover, Springsteen’s 4F draft card excusing him from military service during the Vietnam War to lyric drafts for “Born To Run,” “Rosalie,” “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” and more, a lyric notebook from1968 and items from his first band, the Castiles.
The seller, who has contributed some of these items for display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, is anonymous, but Moments In Time’s Gary Zimet tells Billboard that, “It’s extraordinary that one person could assemble such a truly unbelievable collection.”
Zimet says he may consider selling off pieces separately but right now Moments In Time wants to sell it in a single lot.
