Other items headed under the hammer include a handwritten U2 setlist from 1983, expected to pull in between £2,500 ($4,000) and £3,800 ($6,000), a signed Houses of the Holy Led Zeppelin record, a signed copy of Pink Floyd’s The Wall and concert posters for the likes of James Brown, Frank Zappa, the Beatles and Johnny Cash, the report said. One of the newer items in the listing is a Mickey Mouse T-shirt, signed by members of the Mickey Mouse Club including Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake. The T-shirt is expected to sell for between £3,800 ($6,000) and £5,100 ($8,000) – those feeling flush are able to start bidding at a £3,100 ($4,800) reserve price.
