€300 will get you into an ’80s groove
Fancy nabbing yourself a fedora once worn (and autographed) by Michael Jackson? How about Rory Gallagher’s replica Stratocaster and amp, bought by the legendary guitarist from Crowley’s Music Store in Cork in 1963? Perhaps you’d prefer to pore over a signed letter by John Lennon and Yoko Ono dating from 1972?
All of these items and more are being auctioned by Whyte’s of Molesworth Street on May 31st. If you’ve got the cash, you can put in a bid for a signed postcard sent from Germany by Elvis Presley during his army stint (¤800¤1,200), an autographed U2 concert programme (¤400-¤600), or a life-size sculpture of Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten (¤2,000-¤3,000). On the slightly more affordable end of the scale, there are items such as Madonna’s Live Aid jacket from 1985 (¤300-¤500), a Cranberries cassette tape from 1990 (¤300-¤500), or a watercolour portrait of Elvis Costello (¤300 -¤400).
Viewings of all items will be held at Whyte’s from May 28th - 31st. See whytes.ie.
