RR Auction - Fine Autographs and Artifacts Featuring Music and Prince

Auction Details

RR Auction's March Fine Autographs and Artifacts sale boasts a strong music section featuring Prince—among these extraordinary artifacts are a Cloud guitar custom-made for Prince, his screen-worn Purple Rain shirt, and an incredibly rare first pressing of The Black Album. Other music highlights come from the Beatles—highlighted by a Yellow Submarine jukebox, several vintage signature sets, and photographs—and Bob Dylan—including a suite of signed prints, a Highway 61 Revisited album signed in person, and documents associated with his mysterious Triumph motorcycle crash. Top historical items include an important Martin Luther King, Jr. letter to Sammy Davis, Jr., an exceedingly rare military document signed by King Edward IV, and significant letters by Paul Gauguin, Franz Kafka, and Henry David Thoreau. RR Auction is a globally recognized and trusted auction house specializing in historical autographs and artifacts. Join us as we make history selling history in March 2021.
