Assuming that's all factual, and that I had the money, yes I'd buy it.

It's not like their selling Lennon's head in a jar or anything, so I don't find it particularly morbid.

If they were, say, selling organs from homelss people they'd murdered, that would be morbid, because it involves exploitation. This is the simple resale of a product of a materialistic market (a market that Lennon participated in and exploited) and an item that has curiously increased in value precisely because of the death of its creator. I dunno - I am a great lover of irony, and there's just something delicios about this item. The fact that someone's making money qualifies this item in that regard.
