RollingStone.com

Nearly 100 records owned by Joey Ramone are going up for auction online, along with some of his clothes, his passport, handwritten lyrics and his Rolodex, Billboard reports.

Starting Feb. 14, the Ramones singer's estate will auction off a 97-title vinyl collection, including albums by Cream, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, T. Rex, the Kinks, the Human League, Toots and the Maytals and Yes. There's a minimum bid of $500, and the auction continues through Feb. 21

There are separate auction items for Ramone's passport, handwritten lyrics, two guitars he owned, a Rolodex containing music-business contacts and items of clothing, including a leather jacket, sunglasses and a lot of his 140 T-shirts from bands including Nirvana and Motorhead, radio stations and locations. All items include a letter of authenticity from the Joey Ramone estate.

Ramone, whose real name was Jeffrey Hyman, died in 2001. His posthumous solo album "... Ya Know?" came out last year.
