Unlike Johnny Cash, Merle did spend time in Prison. During his stay at San Quentin State Prison he played in the country music band having been inspired by Cash’s 1959 New Years performance at the prison.
Merle is pictured here with one of his Toy Fox Terriers. His dog "Tuffy" is memorialized with an abalone inlay in the headstock of the Fender Custom Shop Merle Haggard Signature Tribute "Tuff Dog" Telecaster guitar.
This is a signed original Lifetime Photograph by Jim Marshall.
Lifetime Photographs were typically:
Printed as 11" x 14" or 16" x 20" (sheet size), and were not designated as limited editions (with very few exceptions).
Produced as silver gelatin prints (black & white), or C-prints and pigment prints (color), and occasionally as platinum and dye-transfer prints.
Printed and signed by Jim Marshall between the mid-1990s and 2010. Older pieces are usually smaller and dry-mounted, and we classify those as "Vintage."
These signed photographs come directly from Jim Marshall's estate archive, and are now extraordinarily rare and increasingly valuable.
Pieces will usually ship within a few days of purchase.
