Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run manuscript sells for almost double auction estimate

A handwritten manuscript of Bruce Springsteen's 1975 classic Born To Run has smashed auction estimates after going under the hammer for $197,000 (£131,330). Many of the lyrics featured in the early draft of the Boss' signature song never made it into the finished track, although the piece of rock 'n' roll history included a "nearly perfected chorus", according to officials at Sotheby's auction house in New York. The 1974 document was valued at up to $100,000 (£66,670), but it was snapped up by a mystery buyer on Thursday (05Dec13) for almost double the estimate. The lyric sheet was discovered in a collection of memorabilia previously owned by the rocker's former manager, Mike Appel.
