The belongings of five-time Grammy award winner and Grammy Hall of Fame inductee, B.J. Thomas, are available for purchase through an online sale curated by Rockology and overseen by the B.J. Thomas Estate.
Items that were personal to B.J. including his Rolex watches, signed baseballs, guitars, awards, personal letters including one from President Reagan, and various other items are included in the sale which is live now. New items will be added weekly.
“The hardest thing for me was losing the love of my life, B.J., my honeyman,” says Gloria Thomas. “Now, working with a team of people, we are placing items of B.J.’s in museums and are working to keep his legacy and memory alive. Doing this sale will also allow many of his loyal fans the chance to have a piece of history and memorabilia that normally wouldn’t be available to them. I can’t take everything with me, so I must downsize and the best way to keep B.J.’s memory alive is to share his stuff with the fans.”
Since his emergence in the 1960s, Thomas’s career crossed multiple genres, including country, pop, and gospel, earning him CMA, Dove, and Grammy awards and nominations. His career was anchored by numerous hits, among them his million-selling cover of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” the Grammy-winning “(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song,” and the iconic “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” which won the Academy Award for best original song.
Thomas sold over 70 million albums worldwide, scoring eight No. 1 hits and 26 Top 10 singles over his 50+ year career. His lengthy chart history led to him being named one of Billboard’s Top 50 Most Played Artists Over The Past 50 Years.
Thomas passed away on May 29, 2021 at home in Arlington, Texas from complications due to stage four lung cancer. He was 78.
