Beatles collectables reach fever pitch with New years day auction

30 years ago, Mark Chapman shot possibly our most important musician. Such an injustice – The man had so much more to give.

The Beatle that made it all tick (sorry Paul), John Lennon is more than just a legend.

30 years ago we lost a musical hero, yet still the work remains current. To date, around 139.5 million albums have been sold.

Now, you have a chance to capture and own a true specimen of Beatlemania collectables.


The white suit worn by Lennon on the album cover of Abbey road is up for auction.

The two-piece suit, designed for Lennon by Ted Lapidus of Paris is among a host of the singer’s possessions up for auction by Braswell Galleries in Connecticut on New Year’s Day.

The suit, along with an iconic blazer Lennon wore and a 1972 Chrysler station wagon that once belonged to Lennon and Yoko Ono, are among the Beatles memorabilia being auctioned

You may remember the video for Imagine, where John Lennon wore the velvet fleur de lys designed blazer as he sat behind the grand piano, beside Yoko Ono.

Of the suit, Braswell said he did know how much it would fetch, but noted that the suit and blazer together sold for $120,000 in 2005.

Historic? Yes. Awesome? Very.

“Imagine thers’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do.
Nothing to kill or die for and no religion too”

RIP John Lennon, You are missed.
