John Lennon Owned, Worn & Signed Necktie with Photo-Match!

In May 1975, radio station WFIL in Philadelphia was raising money the weekend of May 16-18th for charity. John Lennon was the feature special guest that weekend.

In a written statement from Ted Vollmer, the guy that got this tie from Lennon, he wrote "John Lennon spent a weekend in Philadelphia in May 1975 to assist local news anchor Larry Kane with the Helping Hands Charity marathon. He made appearances at WFIL studios to greet fans. I attended one of these events. Mr. Lennon, to garner money for the charity, removed his own necktie from around his neck. He held it up asking who would want to buy it. In spite of trying to act cool and calm, I was starstruck and rushed to the barricade offering my last $20 for the tie. Mr. Lennon accepted the money for the charity and signed the tie. I have had this tie in a plastic bag for the past 46 years. I am now ready to release it. I will no longer have the tie, but I will always have a great story."

The tie was signed with a blue ballpoint pen.

Any clothing items relating to John Lennon are incredibly rare, but what makes this piece exceptional is the identifying photo-match.

Authentication: A statement of facts from Ted Vollmer and a Letter of Authenticity from James Spence Authentications (JSA) and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
