Rocketed to enduring fame in America with an electric appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, The Beatles are the best-selling musical act of all time. Their influence resonates through the music industry and continues to shape performance art today. RR Auction is nearly as famous when it comes to holding record breaking Beatles auctions. We’d love for you to join our band of successful consignors. After all, all you need is love!
Our buyers are willing to pay top dollar for that lasting legacy and the memorabilia that goes with it. From a Beatles-signed Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album to a rare salary document from the Top Ten Club in Hamburg, Germany, the evidence of our buyers’ enthusiasm can’t be overstated. Such important parts of history—like this autographed Beatles album given to the doctor that treated George Harrison’s sore throat ahead of the Ed Sullivan appearance—fetch high payouts thanks to the diligence of the RR Auction team.
RR Auction has received extensive news coverage for our many collections featuring Beatles memorabilia. In 2015 and 2016, NME Magazine reported on several collector’s pieces we received from different band members. “The double-breasted black wool jacket made £29,900 at Boston-based RR Auction,” writes David Renshaw. Among other pieces we’ve sold include “A custom-made suit of John Lennon’s…a signed Beatles postcard—which includes the rare signature of fill-in drummer Jimmie Nicol—and signed receipts (by George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and Pete Best) from the Star Club” writes Sam Moore.
Along with clothing, albums, and signatures, we have also sold personal letters from band members Paul McCartney and John Lennon. One letter from Paul McCartney addressed to late musician Prince “was sold by RR Auction in Boston for $14,822—well above the $4,000 it had been estimated to sell for,” writes Tufayel Ahmed from Newsweek magazine. An article from The Wrap covered one of our more scathing letters written by John Lennon to Paul McCartney. “The letter, believed to date from 1971, sold for $29,843…The winning bidder, a collector from Dallas, wished to remain anonymous” according to Tim Kenneally.
In more recent news, RR Auction offered an exceedingly rare acetate of the Beatles’ 1964 concert at the Hollywood Bowl. “The disc, one of just three known to exist, features the full 12-song, 29-minute concert, along with stage comments from the group” according to Jem Aswad at Variety. At the time this recording went unreleased due to the group and their manager Brian Epstein being unsatisfied with the recording. Despite the band’s dissatisfaction many years prior, this vinyl acetate still sold for a considerable amount of $23,838.
