Frank Sinatra’s Little Black Book Just Sold for $8,960
Take a look at one of the most interesting address books of all time.
Details of Frank Sinatra’s little black book have been divulged following its sale at Julien’s Auctions for an astounding $8,960.
Carried by the Rat Pack Lothario from the seventies through the nineties, the oxblood leather booklet was revealed to hold the contact information of A-list chums like Sidney Poitier and John Wayne, as well as likely paramours.
Man of the Worldmagazine, which broke the story and published a few photos of the book’s contents to the web, described Sinatra’s address book as “a who’s who of the jet set’s gilded age.” A fortune cookie message pasted to the front cover allegedly reads, “Beware of friends, who are false and deceitful.”
Its elusive contents are sure to be the source of greater intrigue come December with the celebration of Sinatra’s centennial.
