John Lennon's tracksuit up for auction for $35K

Thursday, May 30, 2019

John Lennon may be most famous for his round sunglasses, but any piece of his closet could be considered iconic.

And now, a blue tracksuit once owned by the late singer — who was killed by Mark David Chapman in 1980 at the age of 40 — can be yours. According to TMZ, the outfit is going up for auction through the memorabilia company Moments in Time, with the asking price set at $35,000.

The tracksuit itself is just as special as its former owner; John wore a matching set with wife Yoko Ono when they traveled to Denmark in 1970 to visit her ex-husband Tony Cox and their 6-year-old daughter, Kyoko.

The trip was meant to help mend fences between Ono and Cox, who were locked in a bitter custody dispute over Kyoko. While it worked for a time, Cox eventually won custody the following year, and Ono did not see her daughter again until 1998.
