- Press Release

Eil.com, one of the world's leading purveyors of rare music memorabilia, have managed to source a collection of original John Lennon owned items.

This is the kind of collection that has auction houses drooling, the kind of items that are blue chip investments but far sexier than playing the stock market.


John Lennonís Sunglasses



Often ridiculed for his legendary short-sightedness, John Lennon refused to wear glasses when he played live. There is one notable exception to this, July 2 1966 when as part of a hastily arranged Japanese tour he wore a pair of his trademark gold rimmed glasses (as shown in a shot from the show).

At the end of the tour John presented the glasses to the TV producer who had acted as their translator for the fab four on this trip. This authentic piece comes complete with a detailed note from the former Nippon TV Executive regarding the provenance and background to owning the sunglasses. He also explains how he removed the lenses, as he felt that after his death Lennon could see him [A traditional Japanese custom].

John Lennonís Original 1966 Sunglasses are available for £8,950


Original John Lennon Hand Drawn Sketch

Whimsical sketch by John from 1974 depicting himself with Harry Nillson & Jesse Ed Davis [Lennon's guitarist] stood around the pool table at Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco in LA. This is part of the infamous lost weekend when the three of them were out on the town whilst recording Walls & Bridges in LA, after John exiled himself to California without Yoko Ono in order to see if their love was strong enough to survive. John initialled the sketch & Jesse Ed Davis has signed the reverse as provenance as well as providing a short handwritten note as authentication.

John Lennon Original Hand Drawn Disco Sketch is available for £7,500


Original John Lennon Autographed Pig Postcard



Official postcard that was originally available with the Imagine album which depicts John fondling a Pig's ears. This was widely regarded as a lampoon of Paul McCartney's Ram album cover, where Paul fondles a ram. Apart from signing John has added the message ĎIt's Just A Pig?' Love John Lennon 74'.

John Lennon Autographed Pig Postcard is available for £2,950


Original John Lennon T-Shirt

Brazilian T-Shirt once owned and worn by John Lennon during the recording of what sadly was to be his last album Double Fantasy. The T-shirt was originally presented by Lennon to his guitar tech Richard Carlson at the Hit Factory Recording Studio in NYC in 1980, when John & Yoko recorded their 1980 masterpiece. This comes complete with a letter of provenance from Richard detailing the background to him owning this fantastic shirt.

Original John Lennon Owned T-Shirt is available for only £1,250


Original John Lennon Hand Drawn Sketch

Incredible ORIGINAL 8" x 5" sketch drawing by John in 1978 depicting the family Lennon relaxing underneath a tree. This quirky comical sketch reflects the peaceful nature of Johnís life at this time and was presented as a thank you to Johnís Aromatherapist Frank Max.

John Lennon Original Hand Drawn Disco Sketch is available for £5,950
