Beatles memorabilia always manages to create a furor in any auction that they are a part of, irrespective of what it really is. However this one is every music-lover’s dream come true. Coming under the hammer was a copy of the Beatles hit single ‘Please Please Me’ which has been autographed on both sides by all four of the band members. Owned by a Liverpool based lady who got it signed at the city’s Cavern venue when she was young, the record earned £9,000 ($14,735) under the hammer.
Other items sold at the annual Beatles Convention auction that saw bids from all over the world, particularly from Austria, Germany, Australia and the US includes John Lennon’s cap that fetched £3,200 ($5,240) and the burgundy door at the Kensington studio where they first recorded professionally that sold for £2,300 ($3,765).
