Beatles Auction: A scrawled note from John Lennon's early manager promising that his school band was "up to standard" to play in a local club forms part of the largest collection of Beatles memorabilia to come up for auction. The collection, once on exhibition in central London, has gone into receivership. Auctioneers expect it to fetch around $384,000 on Wednesday. Fans also will have the chance to buy Lennon's black Gretsch guitar for an expected $77,000. His Steinway piano, on which he wrote much of his solo hit single "Imagine," is estimated to bring $15,000 and his famous velvet-trimmed collarless tan suit, $9,000.
