    Description

    The Cars: Elliot Easton's Album Cover Worn Jacket for "The Cars" (1978). A true rock garment by every measure, presented here is an original 1970's white leather bikers jacket, worn prominently by The Cars lead guitarist Elliot Easton on the large color image that graces the reverse side of the band's self-titled LP debut released in 1979. Features an array of zipper workings along the chest, pockets, wrist areas, and stands in overall fine condition, with scattered hints of soiling. (White leather is not easy to keep clean -- especially when you're a rock star!) Accompanied by an original pressing of the album showing Easton wearing the jacket, signed by him on the front cover in black felt tip marker. Direct from his own personal collection, a handwritten letter of authenticity from Elliot Easton will accompany this lot.
