The collection debuted on YellowHeart, an NFT marketplace for music and tickets, and featured numerous Beatles and John Lennon items, such as Paul McCartney’s “Hey Jude” notes, John Lennon’s Afghan coat worn on Magical Mystery Tour, and a black cape worn by John Lennon in the movie “Help!”.
Each of the NFTs had a starting price, the highest of which was $30,000 for Hey Jude Notes, which Paul McCartney wrote for Julian Lennon during a difficult time when his parents John and Cynthia Lennon divorced. The NFT unexpectedly sold for $76,800.
The two other NFTs selling for the highest prices were John Lennon’s Afghan coat and the 1959 Gibson guitar Julian Lennon received from John Lennon, both of which sold for $22,400.
Overall, sales for the whole “Lennon Connection” NFT collection totaled $158,720.
