Rare and extremely desirable Bruce Springsteen signed high school yearbook. The 1967 Freehold New Jersey Regional High School yearbook, titled The Log, features aspiring artist and graduating senior Bruce Springsteen in the era and context that inspired him and shaped much of his creative powers in the years to come. Springsteen has inscribed and signed the book in blue ink above his yearbook picture, “Anielia, Best of luck in the coming years and always remember Mr. Hussey’s English class. Have fun this summer, Bruce.” Both the inscription and signature are printed and grade “10.” Springsteen is pictured only once in the book and it appears obvious, by the brief educational summary printed below his name “”Freehold Boro…College Prep”), that his academic pursuits had already taken a back seat to his musical ambitions. At the time of his graduation, Springsteen was performing as the lead guitarist and singer for a local band call “The Castilles.” His career quickly blossomed and just seven years later, following a performance of Springsteen and the E Street Band in Cambridge, Massachusetts, music critic Jon Landau, wrote “I saw my rock and roll past flash before my eyes. I saw something else: I saw rock and roll’s future and its name is Bruce Springsteen.” (Landau would later become Springsteen’s manager and producer.) The 308-page (including eight-page insert) leather-bound book (8 x 10.75 inches features numerous inscriptions to “Aniela” throughout and displays light wear from normal handling. Overall in Excellent

Letter of Authenticity
Letter of provenance by Jim Silver
Jim Silvers letter reads; “The time the ad came out I was in the process of producing an album of songs Johnny had made popular, The reason for the album was to benefit research in Shy-Drager Syndrome.
Johnny’s manager lives in Thousand Oaks near where I used to live and we would talk occasionally and I had given him that picture of Johnny & June in the love seat (a copy of which is in the Country Music Hall of Fame).
Anyway, the ad came out and I asked Lou to see that Johnny signed it and sent it to him when he was in Nashville. Johnny was always very cool, except the time around when I was introduced to him by Norman Blake (his guitar, dobro and utility band member) his producers from New York were the typical putzes, maybe with good reason as there had been threats against John Carter Cash’s life; he was an infant at the time.
My album fell short of my hopes as I couldn’t get one of the main acts, Ledward Kaapana because of logistics, and I pissed off Balfa Toujours and they withdrew, otherwise it would have surpassed my hopes and expectations. Two cuts stand out; Jackson by the punk band ADZ was vilified by Cash’s manager, Lou Robin, screaming into my answering machine for several messages, though I am sure Johnny got a kick out of it as it’s a wonderful cut, and The Ballad Of Ira Hayes (the Pima indian who raised the flag on Iwo Jima and died drunk in a ditch on his reservation). We got the infamous Russell Means, a big wheel in AIM (the American Indian Movement and on trial for murder and a number of violent events) to do the song. The Washington Post said it was to depressing to listen to, the assholes, but one of my favorite cuts, if not the favorite on the album”
