IMAGINE NO POSESSIONS - THEN WHAT THE HELL WOULD WE AUCTION?

So, we're reading the details of the forthcoming auction of John Lennon's Sergeant Pepper tunic along with other odds and sods, and we have an uncanny sense of that French thingy. Ennui, yes, but also deja-vu. Is it just us, or does it seem like there's an auction of Lennon related tat every few months now - is there a massive warehouse in Kirkby full of stuff ("okay, for autumn 2005 we'll do the underwear, pencils, and his old mouth organ, then at Christmas we'll flog his comedy specs, vinyl records F through to K, and a half eaten saveloy he nibbled while trying to think of a rhyme for 'possessions'")? Or is this just the same few items, in constant circulation?
