A Christmas card written by John Lennon is on sale for $15,000.
The festive note was penned by John, in 1968 for his wife Yoko Ono’s ex, music producer Tony Cox, and the former couple’s daughter, Kyoko Cox. The card, which is being sold on MomentsInTime.com, is believed to be referring to Yoko – who was married to Tony from 1962 to 1969 – moving out. It reads: “Dear Tony, we took most of the stuff I think … if we picked up anything of yours – or something you need (don’t panic!)
“We’ll put it back or send it depending where you are. Hope it’s o.k. there – it sounds it.
“Merry Xmas etc
“John and Yoko (sic)”
Another page of the note sees John asking Tony where the mastertapes of a 1968 concert Yoko performed are, and two of her short films. He writes: “We can’t find them.”
In the part addressed to Kyoko, the card reads: “To Dear Kyoko, A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, lots of love and kisses, John and mommy.”
In February 2016, a four-inch lock of John’s hair sold for $35,000 at auction. The ‘Imagine’ hitmaker’s tresses were chopped off prior to his 1967 movie role in ‘How I Won the War’. What’s more, his Rolls Royce Phantom V once sold for $2.23 million and lyrics to Beatles hit ‘All You Need is Love’ fetched $1.25 million.
