Beatles Memorabilia Up For Auction
The demand for Beatles memorabilia continues at a fever pace.
London’s Daily Mail reports that a page of cartoon-like sketches made by high-school student Paul McCartney sold at auction Friday for $5000. And though it was certainly not the precursor of a future at Disney or Warner Brothers studios, Sir Paul has long enjoyed painting — and has held several showings of his work over the years.
More money will soon be changing hands on some different visual art. A collection of 61 photos taken at The Beatles’ famous August 1965 Shea Stadium concert goes up for bids on March 22nd. Since the winner will also gain the copyrights to the photos, it would not be shocking to see Paul, Ringo, Yoko or Olivia Harrison — or a combination of them — make a bid so they control the photos’ use (and share in the profits).
