FrontRunners: Cash for Sale

A notebook containing the handwritten lyrics to songs that Johnny Cash wrote and recorded during his Sun Record days and a black Martin D-42JC custom guitar that he played during recording sessions in 1999 are among the items that will be available to the highest bidders September 14 and 15. Sotheby’s New York (212.606.7000, www.sothebys.com) will host the sale of more than 650 lots from the estate of Johnny and June Carter Cash, including two bronzes by Frederic Remington from the couple’s art collection as well as Johnny’s collection of honorary sheriff’s badges and his 2002 Ford F-150. The pickup is, of course, black.
