A new site launched recently called wikicollecting.org, and it’s aim is to hip you to how much your memorabilia is worth. It also is a clearinghouse for things like the most expensive Beatles collectibles.
Luxist has a rundown of the top five, and it’ll make you feel poor: The most expensive was John Lennon’s Rolls Royce, which sold for $2.23 million in 1985, which means it’s probably way more expensive today. Also on the list are handwritten lyrics, drum heads and a guitar.
