The Jam are auctioning off all the items from their memorabilia exhibition to raise money for charity.
About the Young Idea, the band’s collection of memorabilia, is currently on display in Liverpool’s Cunard Building; the exhibition closes on October 6 then the auction will take place on site on October 7 and 8.
The collection contains over 800 lots, all of which will be sold with a possible sale total of over £500,000.
“This is an unbelievable collection and some of the lots will be dream keepsakes to fans of the band and fans of British music,” said Chris Surfleet from Adam Partridge Auctioneers and Valuers.
“The drum kit could be yours for £20,000-£30,000. We have every record pressing from every one of their releases, all original recording acetates, tour jackets and clothing worn by the band during their time together 78-82, including one of Weller’s pin stripe suits and a Wembley dressing gown,” Surfleet added.
