Concert posters and rare Beatles Butcher Cover bring big money during ItsOnlyRockNRoll.com’s auction
Two things are certain: Concert posters and The Beatles’ Yesterday And Today aka Butcher Cover are hot, hot, hot! Collectors can’t get enough of these items, and if the results for ItsOnlyRockNRoll.com’s latest auction, held June 28, 2005, are any indication, the market and value for these items may continue to rise.
It was Aug. 27, 1965. The Beatles were on the eve of playing Balboa Stadium in San Diego. Elvis was in the midst of shooting “Paradise Hawaiian Style in Hollywood.”
That night, between 10 and 11 p.m., John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr arrived in limousines at Elvis’ home in Bel Air, and Elvis personally greeted them at the door for what forever after became known as the “summit meeting” of Pop music and Rock and Roll.
A generous selection of the 15,000-plus negatives and slides in the collection of noted music photographer Philip Kamin are being auctioned off in Legendary Auctions’ February Premium sale of high-end Sports and Americana Collectibles. Phone and internet bidding will begin on Monday, Feb. 15, and it concludes Wednesday, March 3, 2010.
