Johnny Cash was a musician/songwriter who was one of the most popular recording artists of all time. Songs recorded by Cash have sold over 90 million recordings. Cash was a unique talent who mixed numerous musical genres: country, rock and roll, rockabilly, folk, blues, and gospel. His career lasted from 1955-2003. He was a singer/guitar player whose hits included: "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire," and "A Boy Named Sue." He was famous for giving concerts at prisons, including the aforementioned Folsom Prison. Cash was born in Arkansas and later moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where he got his start in music. He was known for usually dressing all in black and for his simple way of beginning a concert: He would just say, "Hi, I'm Johnny Cash." Themes of his original music included moral culpability, profound regret, and the possibility of redemption. Cash's wide range of musical talent led to his being inducted into the following musical Halls of Fame: Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel. The offering includes two 3x5" originally blank file cards signed by Cash. Each of the cards has "Johnny Cash" signed by the recording artist on one side. Each of the cards has a big and bold Cash signature made with black ink. Both of the cards have been separately encapsulated and individually PSA graded as MINT 9. (PSA certification numbers D54277 and D54278). On the back of PSA cert #D54277, printed in pencil in an unknown hand, is "Johnny Cash/3-8-90/Country Singer" and on the back of PSA cert #D54277, also printed in pencil in an unknown hand, is "Johnny Cash/5-12-93 M/Country Singer." Cash was in many ways a societal rebel, and he also battled addiction off-and-on throughout his life. He once defined success as "Having to worry about everything except money." Cash had a soft side that was apparent when he was once asked about his definition of paradise, and he replied: "This morning with her (second wide June Carter Cash), having coffee." The autographs provide a remembrance of a true, American original.
