For Sale: Johnny Cash’s Harmonica, Jumpsuit

For those of you who’ve always dreamed of owning a piece of the Man in Black’s wardrobe, your time has come. Assuming you can come up with a couple thousand dollars, fast. Apparently, the Cash family is putting many of Johnny’s instruments and costumes up on the auction block in December, with a portion of the proceedings going to charity. The items include many of Cash’s trademarked outfits, particularly the embroidered blue jumpsuit Cash wore at his recording in San Quentin’s jail. (You know the one: It’s featured prominently in the picture of Cash flipping the bird.) The suit is expected to run between $3,000 and $5,000, but come on: ultimate Halloween costume.
