The common thread among this edition’s Market Watch appears to be the letter P: prog rock, a Platinum disc, a pair of Parlophone LPs and a bit of a puzzle.
If Market Watch were ‘Sesame Street,’ this roundup would be sponsored by the letter B: Beatles, Bowie, Billy Ward, Bo Street Runners, box lots and big bucks.
After a brief sabbatical, Market Watch is back. And with every single lot in our Top 5 selling for $10,000 or more, it’s one humdinger of a countdown.
Sure, The Beatles own 30 percent of this Top 10 countdown. But that doesn’t limit variety. We’ve got alt-rock, country jazz, classical, Italian psych and rock.
With a wealth of big-money records changing hands, we decided to bump up our Market Watch countdown to showcase this diverse dozen of online auction sales.
The Beatles and The Rolling Stones first stormed U.S. charts and countdowns in 1964. These days, their records are still large and in charge on our Market Watch countdown of the top online auction results. What other acts have joined them this time out?
It’s been more than 40 years since The Beatles broke up, but the Fab Four still have plenty of pull with collectors.
What Beatles records are best-loved by collectors? It depends on who you ask. But if you let money do the talking from recent online auctions, we get an idea.
This edition’s countdown suggests at least one seller was looking to clean out a collection, with several records from the same seller making into our Top 10.
