The Goldin Auctions recently intrigued collectors with a very interesting lot
So, with a hammer, the album of John Lennon and Yoko Ono was sold. You might think that this is not unusual, moreover, this album can be bought without unnecessary excitement on any trading platform. But no, this particular disc was signed by John himself for Mark Chapman.
It is worth recalling that on December 8, 1980, the presentation of this album took place, where Mark Chapman was present. The man received a signed disc from his idol, and literally a few hours later he killed the singer on the doorstep.
This plastic is still valuable because it was one of the most important pieces of evidence at the time of the murder investigation. In addition to the fact that the album is signed by Lennon's hand, it also contains certain marks of the police officers involved in the case of John. Note that Mark was waiting for a celebrity near his house. When Lennon and his wife were near the front door, Chapman shot the musician five times in the back.
The organizers of the Goldin Auctions announced that this lot will have an initial cost of 30 million rubles, of course, the price will rise if the number of buyers is more than one. The auction has already taken place, yesterday, November 23, 2020, however, the price for which the record was purchased has not yet been announced. It is also not noted who became the lucky owner of the lot.
Also recall that the killer of the musician decided in September of this year to bring an official apology for his act to John's wife. More than 40 years have passed since the tragedy, and only now Mark realized how wrong he was. Chapman assures that he committed the murder only in order to glorify himself as a person. Now the whole world knows the man, but he spends all his time in prison, like a life imprisoned criminal.
“I just want to say that I am very sorry for what I did. I have no excuse in front of you. I did it out of narcissism and for the glory. I believe that the worst crime that can be committed is to do something very bad to an innocent person. " - the offender confesses.
