How much are a punk rock hero's personal items worth?

Joey Ramone’s vinyl record collection, two electric guitars, a leather jacket, his passport, Rolodex, T-shirts and other items will be auctioned off by the late singer’s estate.

 A minimum bid of $500 is attached to the collection of nearly 100 LPs, including albums by Led Zeppelin, Iggy Pop, the Who, Bob Dylan, Donovan, the Beach Boys, and Jimi Hendrix, that were owned and presumably played by Ramone, who died at 49 in 2001 of lymphoma.

The guitars, the jacket and the passport each have a minimum bid of $300, while bidding on his stash of 140 T-shirts begins at $500.

The items will be auctioned online by RR Auction beginning Feb. 14 and continuing through Feb. 21. The items are said to include letters of authenticity from Ramone’s brother, Mickey Hyman, through the Joey Ramone Estate.
