As subscribers to our weekly newsletter will already be aware, Jimi Hendrix's autograph has increased in value by 397.5% in the last 10 years according to the PFC40 Autograph Index.

He is one of the markets' best investments, and that's just for a signature - whereas collectors have a chance to acquire something even more impressive at Berkshire, UK, auctioneer Cameo's sale next Tuesday (August 3).

Hendrix's jacket, purchased in London's Carnaby Street circa 1967-68

Auctioning alongside an original charcoal and ink sketch by the folk legend Bob Dylan is a personal green velvet jacket, worn by the guitarist in his '60s heyday.

According to Cameo, Hendrix bought the jacket from Sixth Sense, Carnaby Street, London - the legendary Swinging Sixties district that the rock guitarist famously frequented during the era. It was apparently never used onstage, but worn by Hendrix while in London around 1967-68.

The jacket also has remarkable provenance to match its £5,000-8,000 ($7,800-12,500) price tag. It was exhibited as part of the Jimi Hendrix Exhibition held at The Hard Rock Cafe, New York, for a three years in the early 1990s.

What's more, it will sold at Cameo with a supporting letter of providence from the Jimi Hendrix Experience's legendary bass guitarist, Noel Redding.
