If you missed your shot at the Godfather of Soul’s shades, don’t despair—there’s still time to get your paws on [Tom Jones](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Jones_(singer))’ billiard table.

On Thursday, London’s The Fame Bureau is auctioning off the table owned and used by the Welsh pop star in the ’60s and ’70s. Made by Burroughes & Watts of London c. 1880, the mahogany masterpiece made a cameo on the record sleeve of Jones’ 1971 LP *She’s A Lady* and is expected to fetch $100,000 – $150,000. Also on offer: Jimi Hendrix’s first burnt guitar, a 1967 Fender Stratocaster, which could go for as much as $1 million; the Bechstein Grand piano used by the Beatles to record *Hey Jude* in 1968, est. $600,000 – $800,000, and a slew of other less expensive but equally entrancing lots.

Start your bidding here.
