35 items from Jack Bruce's personal collection will be auctioned off later this month.
The Cream bassist - who passed away in October 2014 at the age of 71 - handpicked each of the items for the auction before his death and they include 18 costumes worn on tours and concerts across the world, eight guitars, handwritten lyrics and musical manuscripts.
Jack's beloved bass guitar, the Warwick Thumb Bass, will also be sold.
Speaking previously about the bespoke instrument, he said: ''If something ever happened to my old Warwick Fretless Thumb Bass, then I might as well just hang it up [playing bass] entirely, because it is irreplaceable - I love it above all else.''
The items will be sold at Sotheby's next Rock & Pop auction which will take place on Tuesday 29 September.
The auction will take place ahead of the sold out 'Sunshine For Your Love' concert, in aid of the charity EACH, which will take at London's The Roundhouse on Saturday 24 October (and will include performances from Ginger Baker, Joss Stone, Phil Manzanera, Ian Anderson and many more).
