A rare and very collectible set of 8 1/2 X 11 glass-framed pieces of the ORIGINAL OUTLAWS: Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash & Kris Kristofferson. and the original Columbia Records record labels and the cassette insert from that 1985 album and cassette release – NEVER USED and right off the press. HOW DID I COME TO OWN THESE: My late father was the premier GOLD & PLATINUM awards maker for Music Row for 50 years. He passed in January 2016 and his passing was heavily acknowledged on Music Row and throughout Nashville with condolences from the better part of the country music industry. He was legendary around “The Row.” When Gold or Platinum awards were ordered by the big labels, they would send him hundreds of printed graphics, including promo posters, record labels, cassette inserts, CD covers, etc. to use in his awards designs. I inherited his workshop which had tens of thousands of these types of items. I’ve been selling many such items, including “aftermarket” GOLD & PLATINUM awards on ebay since his passing and continue to find new items to list from his incredibly vast inventory of memorabilia and collectibles. The cassette insert is scored (creased) where it would be folded before being inserted into the cassette case. However, as you can tell, it is flat and obviously never folded or bent in any way. I combined these items as a way of using original pieces of iconic printed materials which would never be found anywhere since after the albums, Cassettes or CD’s were retired, any leftover materials would be trashed, except for my father’s workshop where he would keep them in the event additional awards might be ordered years later. So…. this is something that I have very few of and few others could possibly ever own. The original “OUTLAWS” that broke open that music genre more than 30 years ago. Two gone, two left with too few years left to be with us. Glass framed – heavy bubble wrapped shipping in heavy-duty cardboard enforced shipping box.
