The NFT collection is called “The Lennon Connection: The NFT Collection” and includes six historical items of the band. The auction started on January 24, and the sale will be held on February 7 in YellowHeart, an NFT marketplace, and in Julien’s Auctions as the tweet below:

Other Beatles Items Sold by Julien’s Auctions

This was not the first time Julien’s Auctions has sold The Beatles’ historical items. One of the most important items sold by Julien’s Auctions was John Lennon’s acoustic guitar for $2.41 million and a Beatles drum head for $2.1 million in 2015 in Beverly Hills, California. 

Some others of The Beatles memorabilia can be found on Julien’s Auctions website results like The Beatles 1964 cow palace concert drumhead sold for $200,000.

The NFT market had a volume in 2021 of approximately $44.2 billion, according to a report from Chainalysis, and just over the first month of this year. Let’s see if this year will be better as NFT adoption continues.
