2012 Beatles Auction - A Quick Round Up.

The big story about the 2012 Beatles Auction has been the ticket for the last time The Beatles played at the Cavern Club in August 1963.  This 49 year old piece of history sold for £7400 on the day and while we aren't allowed to divulge the identity of the buyer we can confirm that they seem very happy with their purchase.

A set of autographs signed for a former student who had digs in Aunt Mimi's house with a personal dedication about Mimi's cats sold for £6000

A late sixties Cavern Club Christmas card and it's colour prototype went for £110.

There were Cavern Club membership cards from various years. Two that covered years when the Beatles played the club raised £320 (1962 card) and £340 (1963 card).

A piece of the Cavern Club stage was sold for £1700.

Casbah Club membership cards are still proving very popular with collectors, one sold this year for £2000.
Finally a pair of child sized Beatle boots made for the youngest, and only honorary, fan club member in the early 60s sold for £110.

We start to take in lots for the 2013 Beatles Auction from around November. The number of lots we have time to get through in the auction is limited and we were full from around May this year and having to turn people away, so the sooner you place an item with us the more likely it is to make the auction.
