I guess I know where to sell my set.
March 1963 Parlophone promo card...
Auction fever ,it doesnt feel like your spending money until you have to pay
i know its not beatles related but a Hendrix concert ticket and programme that sold for £500 on e bay a few months back and isnt really that rare maybe £900 maximium value sold for nearly $7000 last night, who buys this stuff for that kind of money ,you could list the same ticket in a months time and be lucky to get $800 its just how it goes
What auction house was this?
R&R I believe
it is hard to believe that someone is prepared to pay that amount of money for a batles set or even has that amount of money for what many would call a luxury item. I feel a bit better now when I look at things I have overpaid for!!
I suppose as long as the buyer is happy they must have plenty of cash and a reason for wanting that particular item though i$45,000 is mind boggling
i doubt the buyer is half as happy as the vendor who must be on cloud 9 and RR will be nearly as happy with the $15,000+ in fees
it must be being paid by bank transfer as well as ccards dont go up to that amount , well mine dont!, but it still is mind boggling whatever way you look at it
Credit cards go far, far beyond that amount.
