2022 Beatles Auction - Rare Selcol Toy Beatles Guitar on Card, New Sound Toy Guitar and Selcol Toy Guitar Box

This very rare small plastic guitar was made by Selcol in 1964. It is still in its original plastic, with backing card and plectrum!  It's quite rare to find the toy guitars with their original packaging. 
This item will be up for sale in our Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction in August. The estimate for this lot will be £2000-£2500








There were various designs of toy guitars. Below is a more common but still collectable example - the New Sound Guitar.  It is also in the forthcoming auction. The estimate for that will be £80-£100.




As we said, packaging for the toy guitars can be rare, even more unusual is packing boxes for the items. If you haven't guessed we even have one of those going in the auction this year too! This one seems to have been used to supply a venue in Scotland with toy guitars. Sadly you don't get any stock in the box, but the estimate for this lot will be £100-£150

2022 Beatles Auction - School Photographs from 1956 and 1960 and other Items Related to The Liverpool Institute for Boys

Items related to the schools attended by the various members of the Beatles are often highly sought after. School photos are particularly popular and valuable among collectors. 

We have two of the old long school photographs from the Liverpool Institute for Boys going into our forthcoming Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction. 

The first is from 1956 and includes both Paul McCartney and George Harrison (Neil Aspinall and Mike McCartney are in there too.) 




The photograph is rolled (which is how they came at the time) and carries an estimate of £900-£1200

The second is from 1960 and is badly damaged but comes with a full size reprinted version. 
It includes Paul McCartney (George left the school to work as an apprentice before this photograph was taken) and Mike McCartney should be on it too. 


The estimate on this photograph is £500-£600.

Staying with the Liverpool Institute but unfortunately items without Beatles contents we also have the following two lots going under the hammer. 

Three Institute Magazines from 1960, 1961 and 1963. 


Estimate £30-£40

Two Institute Speech Day Programmes from 1963 and 1964

2022 Beatles Auction - Very Rare Beatles Handbill for Slough

Handbills and leaflets are quite rare due to the fact that they were most often discarded after the shows had happened or tickets had been sent for etc... 

This rare handbill is for the first show of the tour with Roy Orbison at the Adelphi Cinema in Slough on 18th May 1963. The booking slip has been removed, so presumably, the original owner sent for tickets for the concert. I wonder if they enjoyed it? 


It will be offered up for sale in our Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction this coming August and it is estimated to reach between £600 and £800.
