I get asked quite often about about value for fully signed items and individually signed pieces. Im always happy to help but a friend of mine just typed this out and i feel she worded it brilliantly. So heres a breakdown of what you can expect to pay today for Queen items. Keep in mind these prices will jump up in about a year's time thanks to the movie and of course, there are always exceptions to the rules- still, a nice and easy price list for most items. Enjoy

Ok let's do it. Let's talk value. And I dont mean what you personally would pay for things, I mean what the current going rate for each member is based on recent sales around the world. Everyone wants to know about freddie. Alone and on paper (the most basic of autographs) are currently valued at $500-$600 for any that arent from the last year of his life. 1991 is valued higher at around around $900-1100. On albums, posters and photos, take those numbers and add 2 to 300 more to each item. Now the living members: John seems to stay around $50-75 for paper and another 25 for albums, posters and photos. Roger: about the same, usually a bit less for the same items. Same goes for brian. They sign daily. Multiple times a day. They arent rare. Now for the whole band: a fully signed paper can range from $1.5 to 2K depending on the quality ect. Fully signed albums, poster and photos are now averaging at about 2.5 to 3K USD. Innuendo and Mircale items going for more. 3.5K to 5K depending on the item (taking into account a more realistic figure for those 6 and 7K innunedo posters).

Quick guide:

Freddie Mercury (individually):

  • 1970s to 1988 on paper and alone= $500-$600/650 USD.
  • Earlier signatures (from his time in college or boarding school) would be double that.
  • 1989-1991 on paper= $900 to 1100 USD.
  • Posters, albums, and photos= take the average price per year on paper and add another 200 to 300.

John Deacon (individually): John is retired but does indeed still sign both TTM and in person.

  • Paper= $50 to 75.
  • Posters, albums and photos, add another 25 to 30 USD. 

Roger Taylor (individually):

  • paper= $30 to 65.
  • Posters, photos and albums= $55 to 100

Brian May (individually): same a Roger. 

Fully signed items:

  • Paper= 1.5 to 2K USD.
  • Albums, posters and photos= 2.5 to 3K USD. 
  • Innunedo and Mircale items (being the last pieces Freddie was around to sign while also not attending promo functions or public events)= 3.5K to 5K [taking taking into account a more realistic figure for those 6 and 7K innunedo posters]

This is awesome information, it is very well written, tell her thanks from the forum :)

This is a perfect example of fans/fan collectors having the most current and best information. 

If I ever had a need for a Queen item - you and your friends would be who I would turn to (all day).

Thanks for doing what you do for the forum David!

Thanks for that, W! Very kind of you to say. 

I'm sure she'll be thrilled to know its helping others on another site

Great informative post, thanks Innuendo!

Thank you my friend

quite agree wascher!!

Thanks michelle, it's always a pleasure to speak with you 

This is excellent!  Thank you. 

Thanks, CR glad it could be of some help

I have to add one question - how about fully signed items without Freddie? I mean what about all three surviving members on stuff which was released after 91?

Items signed by the 3 remaining members are valued at about 125 to 150 USD for paper and (unless it's a really rare item) all other signed albums, poster and pics would be worth 200 to 250 USD. People love to ask a ton for those but they rarely move at higher prices.

Thank you for that great list, Innuendo!

I own a Christmas Card, fully signed, you can see it in my album-fotos.

In which category you sort that, Paper or Albums/Posters/Photos?

Saw it. Awesome :)
