Regardless of what the arrogant Ringo Starr thinks about his fans, one thing is for certain, Beatles Fans are not just a nostalgic loyal bunch. Beatles fans can be found in every corner of the world and fit into all demographics that you can imagine. If you look up “Beatles memorabilia” on Google, you will find that there are more than a quarter million websites dedicated to the Fab Four and interest keeps getting bigger and bigger each year and the money just keeps rolling in for the band and the music that we all love. Most people have at least one memory of the band and most of us have a least one piece of memorabilia stored away somewhere.
One of the things that make collecting Beatles memorabilia interesting and fun is that there is so much of it available for public purchase. You can purchase and collect new and reproduction posters and prints at many different outlets including Posters.com or odd collectibles at buythebeatles.com. However, for the true collector and connoisseur of Beatles memorabilia, just like collectors of other antiques & collectibles, part of the allure and the fun is the actual hunt. It is always more interesting to me if I find a neat old photograph or quirky collectible at someone’s yard sale or in some box at an auction.
Because of the enormous amount of memorabilia available, you can find Fab Four memorabilia just about anywhere including local yard and garage sales, flea markets, antique shops, malls and stores as well as thrift stores and auctions, both live and online. A recent search of eBay for “The Beatles” brought in more than 8,550 results, with everything from vintage record albums and T-shirts to posters, pictures and autographs. Pricing is another reason collectors are quick to purchase Beatles memorabilia.
Prices can vary for any antique, collectible or vintage memorabilia and Beatle memorabilia is not exception. The search of eBay revealed prices from under a dollar for a postcard to over $11,500 for a signed Linda McCartney picture of The Beatles. Of course, the rarer the collectible, the more it is worth; an example of this recently was a letter that was written by John Lennon and sold by Bonham’s. The letter, which was written to a New York Times journalist, brought in more than $25,000 from a bidder in England.
