Chance Martin, longtime manager and confidant to Johnny Cash, personal phone book. A very tattered, phone book, circa 1960’s – 1980’s, showing numerous entries for legendary recording artists, including Johnny Cash and family and of course Elvis Presley. A truly historical artifact from the hierarchy of country music.
Gospel greats, the Blackwood Brothers early career song booklet with a page of handwritten lyrics. Both pieces were acquired in Chance Martin’s possessions. Chance was Johnny Cash’s longtime manager and confidant.
Two checks from Johnny Cash. One unused check from the joint account of Johnny and June Carter Cash, from their Jamaican residence. A second check signed “Johnny Cash”, but not in his hand, for $300 cash, dated 1967.
Handwritten Letter to Trisha Yearwood and Robert Reynolds, formerly of the Mavericks. This letter accompanied an antique silver tea set (featured in previous auction), Johnny and June gave Trisha and Robert for their wedding in 1994. Unique in that both congratulatory notes are handwritten on the same piece of paper. As well, you rarely see celebrity to celebrity correspondence surface for public acquisition.
