The second item is a 1987 typed letter, signed by Ron Harry, the Boston Garden organist for the Boston Celtics, addressed to Nicholson and telling him the reason he plays the song Hit the Road Jack during Celtics games: "Word has it that you are…America's Number One Basketball Fan! That is the only reason that I play Hit the Road Jack – just good-natured fun" (est. $750-$1,000).

The George Walker item is an AMQS (autograph musical quotation signed), handwritten sheet music for a piece titled Sonata No. 1 for Piano, dated 1953.
