In a unique Auction at Bonham’s in London, music lovers can bid on a set of handwritten lyrics to the track “The Jean Genie” by David Bowie. But the lyrics will not go under the hammer at a bargain price, with an estimated value of $22,872 USD.

The lyrics are signed and dated; their value is massive considering how rare the piece of music memorabilia is, as explained by Stephen Maycock an entertainment item specialist:

"It's very rare indeed. David Bowie material has been fairly scarce in the auction market in the last few years but we have noticed with the exhibition and David's raised profile more material has come onto the market recently so it's a very good time for something like the lyrics of one of David's most iconic songs to be offered for sale," 

But if that wasn’t enough for music lovers, bidders can also try their luck at getting a piece of Mick Jagger’s hair. The hair was kept by the family of his girlfriend during the 1960’s before he became a world famous star. It is expected to fetch just over $3,000 USD.

The upcoming Entertainment Memorabilia is now displayed and also includes more items from David Bowie, Eric Stewart and Jimmy Page.

The auction will take place on July 3rd.
