Album signed by John Lennon for his murderer Mark Chapman goes on sale for $1.8 million

The album which John Lennon signed for his killer Mark Chapman hours before he was shot dead outside his home has gone on sale for $1.8million.

Lennon autographed this Double Fantasy album for Chapman as he and Yoko Ono left the Dakota apartment building in New York for a recording session at 5pm on December 8, 1980.

The crazed fan stashed the album in a large plant pot at the entrance to the apartments and waited until Lennon and Ono returned at 10.50pm.


As the former Beatles walked into the building Chapman shot him four times in the back. He was pronounced dead 10 minutes later on arrival at hospital.

The signed album was found in the plant pot by a passerby that night who handed it in to the police to be used as evidence in Chapman’s trial.

Now, the present owner, has decided to put the ‘morbid’ piece of music history on the market for $1.5million
