Mickey Gilley & Johnny Lee Autographs

Hey Ya’ll,

I thought it might be interesting to put together a list of items in the Gilley’s Museum collection that are personally autographed by either Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee, or both. I may have missed a few items since the collection is so large, but here are some examples (with pictures) for your appreciation.

#1  Gilley’s gray Confederate Army style cap with Mickey’s picture around the body of the cap.  It has Mickey Gilley’s signature on the brim.

#2  A letter dated August 17, 1982 from Mickey to the President of the Country Music Wax Museum in Nashville that accompanied his donation of a performance outfit to the museum. It is on Gilley’s Enterprises, Inc. letterhead and hand signed by Mickey Gilley. We obtained the framed letter and outfit after the museum closed.

Since the original 8 autographed items above, we’ve accumulated more items and will add them below as time permits.

Acquired in September of 2013 is this cool red Mickey Gilley LIVE baseball cap with Mickey’s autograph on the bill. The white Mickey Gilley “signature” on top is a thick rubber-like material and the “LIVE” is in glitter. Check it out below.

Here’s a new addition as of January, 2014. It’s a Mickey Gilley BIO Booklet autographed on the cover by both Mickey and Johnny Lee. I believe the booklet was put out as part of the Mickey Gilley Fanclub in the late 1970’s. It contains about 20 pages mostly filled with captioned pictures of Mickey and many people in his life. The booklet measure 8 1/2″ by 11″. Here is a picture of the cover.

Added in May of 2014 is this very hard to find Collectors Series Mickey Gilley “The Early Years” album, made even more collectible when it was autographed by Mickey in 1991.

Added in November of 2104 is a Johnny Lee red print on a white bandana, autographed in the upper left corner by Johnny Lee in 1982. It appears to be a cotton blend fabric and measures approximately 22″ square. Here is a picture of the entire bandana.
