More Beatles Memorabilia To Go Under The Hammer
10/6/2011 8:50pm EDT
John Lennon's personal sketches and other Beatles memorabilia are set to go under the hammer at an auction in Argentina later this month.
The collection, which contains over 120 Fab Four items, features black-and-white photos, an autographed Paul McCartney bass guitar, and even signed checks.
A highly sought-after original drawing by Lennon, which showcases stick figures of the late singer and his wife Yoko Ono, along with a scribbled message that reads "1+1=John+Yoko. 'Tis simple math guys," is expected to fetch upwards of $22,535.
Collector Paul Blisniuk, tells Reuters, "My passion for The Beatles comes from childhood... I grew up with Beatlemania and I'm a Beatles fanatic... I came from a poor family so my dad couldn't afford the records, but over time, I started saving newspaper clippings, magazines, and my collection grew.
The auction will begin on October 13.
