(Classic Rock) A collection of Black Sabbath-related memorabilia is to go on sale at a Sheffield auction on September 30. Dating from 1968 until 1973, the range includes a number of personal postcards from Ozzy Osbourne to his parents in Birmingham while on the road, as well as handwritten lyrics, photographs and tour posters from the group's early days under the banner, Earth - shortened from their original band name, Earth Blues Company. It will be sold as one lot at an estimated starting price of 2000-3000.

Stephen Flintoft, specialist music valuer and auctioneer at the Sheffield Auction Gallery, tells The Antique Trades Gazette: "Perhaps the most interesting item, among so many, is the handwritten lyrics headed 'by Earth' to the song Changing Phases, a title later changed to Solitude, which featured on the 1971 double platinum Black Sabbath album Master of Reality."

The sale room says the collection was saved by a Sheffield resident from a London Docklands property which was being demolished in the 1980s. Photographs of the items to go on auction can be viewed here.
