Johnny Cash memorabilia, including the jumpsuit he wore while rehearsing for his Quentin State Prison gig, is going up for auction.
The Man In Black's embroidered blue jumpsuit is expecting to fetch between 3,000 and 5,000 US dollars in the auction, which also includes vintage guitars, a harmonica, Cash's passport and briefcase, and pages and pages of handwritten lyrics, notes and poems.
The items will be on view in Los Angeles before the December 5 sale, administered by Julien's Auctions. A portion of the proceeds will benefit MusiCares, the Recording Academy's charity for musicians in need.
