Johnny Cash’s Jumpsuit Auctioned For $50k!


Wow! This is INSANE!

A jumpsuit once worn by Johnny Cash during a rehearsal at San Quentin prison was auctioned off yesterday, after a bidding war that ultimately peaked at the selling price of $50,000!

Darren Julien, President and CEO of Julien’s Auction, says:

“Johnny Cash is a true legend and his collectibility spans all continents. Bidders from around the world participated in the auction, proving that the Man in Black’s legacy will forever live on.”

Indeed it, will!

But apparently his legacy doesn’t come for cheap!

The 321 lots offered – including the aforementioned jumpsuit, an acoustic guitar he used to write I Walk The Line, and various handwritten lyrics – ended up pulling in over $700,000 combined!
