Rare Memorabilia From John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix + Others Set for Sale At Auction
A host of rare and one-of-a-kind music memorabilia items -- including a set of original lithographs signed by John Lennon, the signed publishing agreement for Jimi Hendrix's first album and Slash's stage-used guitar from a 1990 Guns N' Roses tour -- are set to go under the hammer starting Nov. 30 during Gotta Have Rock & Roll's Rock & Roll Pop Culture Auction.
With a minimum bid of $72,500, the Lennon 'Bag One' set of 14 lithographs is the highest priced up for auction, followed by the 1967 Hendrix legal contract for the rights to songs such as 'Purple Haze' and 'Manic Depression.' Slash's custom Strat has a minimum bid of $10,000.
More pieces from the likes of the Rolling Stones, the Doors, Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen, the Beach Boys and the Grateful Dead also will be up for sale during the online sale, which winds down Dec. 9. The highest bidder at that point will be the winner of each auction.
More reasonably priced items include a host of signed albums, guitars, drum heads and posters; rare photographs; posters; and a number of special awards. Ever wanted to hang a Foreigner gold album on your wall? Now's your chance!
