A collection of Bruce Springsteen's clothing, guitars and original lyrics have been put up for sale for $7.5 million.

More than 300 items collected by a fan over seven years have been dubbed "The Ultimate Springsteen Collection" by dealer Moments in Time, with CEO Gary Zimet telling Billboard.com: "It's extraordinary that one person could assemble such a truly unbelievable collection."

The hoard of memorabilia began when the owner bought the 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible in which Springsteen wrote worldwide smash hit "Born to Run." He then started fervently collecting items from The Boss' past, including his 4F card which excused him from serving in the Vietnam War and the flannel shirt the singer wore for the cover of his 1980 album "The River."

Lyrics included in the sale include a notebook from 1968, which includes 18 early songs.

According to Zimet, the seller has a fixed price for the items, but would consider selling them separately rather than as a job lot.
