NEW YORK, NY, USA An internet auction being held by "Gotta Have It!" will feature many items associated with the Beatles and other superstars, including Jimi Hendrix. The on-line auction ends on August 5.

The New York auction house first gained recognition in 2008 when a John Lennon necklace which had appeared on the nude cover for John & Yoko Ono's "Two Virgins" album sold for $528,000.

The most highly valued item, Lennon's black three-quarter length leather jacket, dubbed the "sandwich cover" jacket (which was seen on the cover of "Les Beatles") is expected to sell for around $67,000.

Also up for bids is Lennon's black suit jacket and striped trousers combination, worn in the band's 1964 debut film "A Hard Day's Night"; it is expected to sell for around $25,000.

And a collarless gray jacket, considered to be one of the most iconic and recognizable pieces associated with the Beatles, is valued at $50,000.

A psychedelic cravat worn by Lennon during the recording of "With a Little Help from My Friends", valued at $20,000 and a blue suit jacket made by the Beatles' personal tailor appraised at $50,000 are also on the block.

The least valuable item, Michael Jackson's missing prosthetic nose, is expected to bring less than $5 and is not truly considered to be memorabilia; interest has been shown in it as a door stop, however.

Make smurfette's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
