Four unreleased Jimi Hendrix 16mm color films were posted on eBay recently and fetched $10,000 when the video reels sold during the final hours of a ten-day auction. The seller, aware of the concert films one-of-a-kind value started the bidding price at 10K and a sole bidder committed to pay that, in return to own this historic Hendrix memorabilia.
A Motley Crue ‘Shout At The Devil’ autographed world tour book and other framed vintage memorabilia sold for $5,000 during a recent eBay auction. Who knew? In 1984 Motley Crue were the last band on earth you might expect to get the “shadow box” treatment but this fan (seller) had a vision and clearly, it’s paid off.
A Beatles double billed ‘on stage’ poster has sold for more money than most of us would pay to watch the Beatles play the double billed concert. Given all we know and love about the Fab Four, most of us would not be willing to drop 42 grand for a lunchtime concert ticket, let alone the poster that advertised it.
Hearing that a Sex Pistols ‘God Save The Queen’ single sold for over $19,000 on eBay is probably enough to make sardonic singer Johnny Rotten’s middle fingers fly high. It’s hard to imagine that a band whose message was so anti-establishment merits such monetary value on an institutionalized auction site.
When Kiss shipped their 1974 debut album out to radio stations, it included a little something extra in the form of a full color poster of the band. Nearly 40 years later, that one-time freebie courtesy of Casablanca Records & Tapes has a collector’s value of at least $1500, based on the one that recently sold on eBay.
Eric Clapton’s vintage valve amplifier recently sold on eBay for over 2,000 British pounds — the equivalent of about $3200 US dollars. That may sound like a lot, but since this Radford STA 25 Series III is a classic and signed and dated by a 19-year-old Clapton, it’s a true collectors’ piece.
Kiss items are extremely collectible and we’ve seen some outrageous prices paid for their guitars, autographs and vinyl. Recently four bidders placed a dozen bids in the hopes of winning a sealed ‘Music from the Elder’ 8-track cassette from 1981. The seven-day auction ended when $295.00 secured the collectible, taking the bid to a winning status on eBay. In the collecting market this isn’t a lot of cash but at the end of the day, it’s an awful lot of money for an eight-track tape!
