The manuscript of rocker Bruce Springsteen’s 1975 hit ‘Born to Run’ is set to go under hammer at an auction next month.
The manuscript has a pre-sale estimate of USD 70,000 to USD 100,000,according to auction house Sotheby’s,reported Ace Showbiz.
The document used to be in the collection of Springsteen’s former manager,Mike Appel. Most of the lines in this manuscript,which were written in 1974 in Long Branch,New Jersey,are said to be unpublished and unrecorded.
“Although Springsteen is known to have an intensive drafting process,few manuscripts of ‘Born to Run’ are available,with the present example being one of only two identified that include the most famous lines in the song,” Sotheby’s said.
The manuscript,which is written in blue ink,will be included in a Manhattan sale of fine books and manuscripts.
