The Top Five Most Expensive Beatles Collectibles

A new site launched recently called, 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.

I really dont see what all the Beatles fuss was about. Seriously. Songs like Yellow Submarine and I am the Walrus? Gimme a break.

Seriously you have no clue what good music is. And all of the music you listen now most definitely has influences from the Beatles.

I could go on and on and on.

I saw the 'Imagine' piano in 1992 I think... at a Beatles 'museum' on the docks of the Mersey River in Liverpool. That being said... it isn't a Beatles Collectible.

Back in 1985, there was a different Beatles Museum in Liverpool, decked out in yellow. I don't know if it was there that I saw the Phantom, or the other spot in 1992... but for all I know, it might have been a replica. I was 9 at the time, and not particularly aware of much history behind it. They had a bunch of stuff at that museum that any Beatles fan should go check out if they can.


And... now I find out that Phantom is 3 miles away from where I sit at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, BC.


Seriously Gango Rango? Do you trawl the net looking for Beatle blogs you can troll? What a waste of time - Hey, how about that Justin Bieber then?


An photograph of and signed by all four Beatles on the set of "Help" will be auctioned at Kilshaw's Auctioneers in Victoria, BC, Canada on March 24, 2011. It comes with four pieces of impeccable, contemporaneous provenance. for more information
