A crude sketch created by John Lennon when he was in college is selling for $54,000. The weird thing is that he depicts himself as Hitler in the drawing.

The doodle is a part of a bigger sketchbook that contained Nazi iconography mixed with what looks like Beatles members. John drew the image in the late 1950s while attending Liverpool College of Art.

The drawing shows John on a podium with his arm raised in a Nazi salute. He wrote “Heil John” repeatedly in the bottom right corner, as well.

President of the memorabilia dealer, Gary Zimet, told Page Six:

“He drew these when he was a college student, and the fact that he even thought of depicting himself as Hitler is weird. Original Lennon drawings are very desirable and they are ultra rare.”
