When John Lennon was fatally shot in 1980 outside an apartment building, a concierge rushed to his aid. The man, whose name is Jay Hastings, was wearing a white button down shirt that became soaked with Lennon’s blood.

According to WOGL, Hasting’s shirt has auctioned off the shirt for $40,819. Originally, it was expected to go for only about $9,000.
