A shocking piece of rock ’n’ roll memorabilia is expected to sell for more than $1 million at auction.

The “Double Fantasy” album that John Lennon signed for his killer, Mark David Chapman, hours before Chapman assassinated the star in 1980 in front of The Dakota will be put up for sale by Goldin Auctions on Monday.

According to the auction house, Chapman left the album in one of the planters outside the Upper West Side building’s entrance, where a pass­erby found it and turned it over to police.

The album — which in 1998 sold for $150,000 — has a starting bid of $400,000 and includes police-evidence markings.
