Did you know I: Today is John Lennon‘s birthday? The late lead singer of The Beatles was born today in 1940 in Liverpool, England.
Did you know II: Cards from the 1964 Topps Beatles set, despite their age, are immensely affordable? Check eBay and you can find more than a few examples for less than the price of a CD. (And you can find graded cards from the set for less than the cost of the white album.)
Did you know III: If you happen to be reading this in New York City today, The Associated Press reports that more than 100 doodles and drawings by Lennon will be on display at the Openhouse Gallery in SoHo through Sunday.
