"Lennon’s ‘Day in the Life’ Lyrics May Fetch $700,000 in Auction"
Signed by Lennon, the single sheet of paper with words covering both sides could fetch as much as $700,000 when it comes up for sale at Sotheby’s New York on June 18. The item once belonged to Mal Evans, the Beatles’ road manager. Sotheby’s London sold the lyrics in 1992, and Bonhams in New York offered them in a sealed-bid auction in 2006 but they didn’t sell.
The lyrics feature crossed out words, corrections and additions in different colors.
