The times they are a-changin' for Bob Dylan's autograph at Sotheby's

Estimated at $200,000-300,000, one of the most important-ever lyric sheets is going up for sale

The times they are a-changin' for Bob Dylan collectibles... sort of.

The man sometimes known as Jack Frost is no stranger to selling thousands at auction, like his jacket, which brought 3,760, earlier this year.

But this item could sell for significantly more.

The Times They Are A-Changin'... estimated at $200,000-300,000

The piece in question is the original hand written lyric sheet to "The Times They Are A-Changin'", due to appear at auction in New York City.

Also bearing the signature "Bob Dylan", the 8 1/2 x 11 inches sheaf of lyrics will go under the hammer next week on December 10. Sotheby's expects it to sell for $200,000-300,000.

The tune originally appeared as the title track of Dylan's 1964 album, and played as the opening song for his concert the night after President John F Kennedy was assassinated.

Dylan's inscribed lyrics to his 1965-released song On The Road Again are for sale onthe market priced at 1,950

If the sale is a success, it'll be great news for collectors. Other Bob Dylan lyrics - like his scribbled signature on theprinted lyrics for On The Road Again from the seminal 1965 album Bringing it All Back Home - can be bought for just 1,950, and may prove to be great appreciating alternative investment in the future.
