An original copy of Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run manuscript sold today at auction for $197,000. Before it went up for auction it was estimated to be worth anywhere from $70,000-$100,000. As many know, when it comes to fans, not many get crazier than Springsteen fans. Camping out for days just to get up front for a show. So it's not a huge surprise that the estimate actually ended up getting double the amount. This piece of Springsteen history was written in Long Branch, NJ and was written in blue ink, on 8.5 by 11 inch paper. Yes, that is true. Below is a picture of the original $197,000 manuscript.
