A blue tracksuit worn by John Lennon once owned by the late singer — who was killed by Mark David Chapman in 1980 at the age of 40 can be yours.
The outfit is going up for auction through the memorabilia company Moments in Time, with the asking price set at $35,000.
The tracksuit itself is just as special as its former owner; John wore a matching set with wife Yoko Ono when they traveled to Denmark in 1970 to visit her ex-husband Tony Cox and their 6-year-old daughter, Kyoko.
The trip was meant to help mend fences between Ono and Cox, who were locked in a bitter custody dispute over Kyoko. While it worked for a time, Cox eventually won custody the following year, and Ono did not see her daughter again until 1998.
While John and Yoko were in Denmark, they drastically changed their looks, shaving off their long hair to promote peace. They kept their shorn locks in a bag and later swapped it for a pair of Muhammed Ali’s boxing shorts, with the intention of auctioning off the wrestling memorabilia and donating the proceeds.
There have been many personal items of Lennon’s collected and sold over the years, including letters and ultra-rare self-portraits, both of which have sold for at least $35,000.
