It’s a Man’s World

He had that swagger even then.

On the good foot.

Rev. Al’s inspiration.

Like a sex machine.

From July 11-16, collectors and fans of the late James Brown will have an opportunity to view some of his personal effects, before they go to the highest bidder on July 17 at Christie’s (Sale #2116). Passports to poetry; photos to furs; handwritten lyrics to hairspray and rollers; no piece of the Godfather of Soul is too big (a grand piano) nor too small (JB’s medical bracelet) to be auctioned off. A Blues Brothers theater lobby card is expected to fetch between $100 and $200, but those dramatic capes will bring up upwards of $15,000 each.

  1. I’ll pass on the hair dryer, but James was the man! I might cop some lyrics or something.
