Paul McCartney Was A Cheeky Young Scout!

There's a lot of interest in the lives of the four lads from Liverpool before they became fab. School photos and other related paraphernalia are hugely collectable, as we've seen before in our auctions.

This childhood photograph of Paul McCartney with his Scout troop shows that he's always been a bit cheeky for the cameras.




This vintage photograph is up for sale in our 2015 Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction in August and is expected to sell for £500-£600

The image is not sold with any kind of copyright and is therefore for private use only.

Beatles Lace Garter

This is currently my favourite item in our 2015 Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction!

This pretty red ribbon and white lace garter features a small black and white picture of the Beatles.


It would make an interesting addition to any Beatles collection and is estimated to fetch between £50-£60 in our Auction in August, so quite a good price for someone just beginning their collection.

Items now been taken for the 2015 Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction

Welcome to 2015.

We have already started to take in items for this year's auction, and over the next few days we'll be posting about them here.

If you have an item that you want us to value please get in touch. Remember that the only person who will be able to give valuations is Stephen and he is hardly ever in on a Friday. It's probably best if you give us a call before coming in with anything  because we can then let you know if Stephen is available and sometimes we can give valuations over the phone or email.
If you are ringing us about an item please have the item to hand, often there are small differences (usually with records) that can drastically affect the prices. We never value autographs without seeing them first, not even "ballpark" figures. You can email us pictures of items too (including autographs), please make sure the scans/photographs are clear and of a reasonable size for us to look at them.

Our contact details are available by clicking here.
