Ramones frontman Joey Ramone's record collection is set to go under the hammer.

The late musician's vinyl collection includes records by Led Zeppelin, The Who, Bob Dylan, The Human League, Iggy Pop and The Doors.

The collection is listed as being "In overall very good to fine condition, with various scattered creases and small tears to sleeves, affixed prices tags and labels, and marks to vinyl."

The records come from the Joey Ramone Estate and are accompanied by a letter signed by Joey's brother Mickey, verifying their provenance.

The minimum opening bid on the albums is $500 (£318) and the collection is going up for auction via RR Auction. Bidding opens on February 14 and ends on February 21.

Also up for auction is Joey's custom made leather jacket, a number of guitars and t-shirts and his passport.

Last year a posthumous Joey Ramone album, 'Ya Know', was released. The record was the second to be released after his death. His first solo album, 'Don't Worry About Me' was released in 2002, a year after he passed away.

The songs on 'Ya Know' were all written by Ramone across as a 23-year period, from 1977 to 2000.
