Hi everyone! I need some help... My friend Mônica passed away several years ago and since I helped her family sell her large Beatles and U2 collection, they gave me a few items. These autographs were obtained by Mônica herself. I would like to sell them, but I don't know how much they're worth.
There are 5 pages of photo albums that were quite popular at the time, measuring 33.5 x 32.5cm each, and three notebook pages, measuring 17.5 x 9cm each.
There are two sides to each album page, and they cannot be split.
Queen – one John Deacon autograph (bass player)
I can’t recognize the other signature
Signed during Rock in Rio, January 7th, 1985
Page 1, side 2:
James Taylor’s autograph
Signed during Rock in Rio, January 8th, 1985
Two magazine photos
Page 2, side 2:
Queen – two Roger Taylor autographs (drummer)
Duran Duran - two John Taylor autographs signed in Madrid on November 17, 1988
Three John Taylor photos taken in Rio de Janeiro, January 1988
Page 3, side 2:
Duran Duran - one Simon Le Bon autograph signed in Madrid on November 18, 1988
Boy George - one autograph signed on CD cover in London on June 18, 1987
Pretenders - one Chrissie Hynde autograph signed on CD cover in Rio on January 6, 1988
Page 4, side 2:
Simple Minds – one autograph signed on Cd cover + one autograph signed on back of postcard, Rio, January 5th, 1988
Hothouse Flowers: five autographs on promotional photo
No date or place
Page 5, side 2:
Hothouse Flowers - one autograph
Terence Trent D'Arby - one autograph
No date or place
On the three pieces of notepaper, I recognize Simon Le Bon’s autograph but not the other two.
I have these photos in high resolution, if anyone would like to enlarge them for a better view. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
I just realized I can only post three pages... too bad! I have 11 images.
Thank you in advance to anyone who might be able to help!
Regards from Rio de Janeiro,
Hi there. Deacon and Taylor are worth around 120 a piece. I'm afraid Queen is all I know, so I couldn't help with any another artist.
Thank you very much!
All the best,
boy george 's sig could be about £40-80 if it is really legible because he doesnt sign that much any more or when he does tends to sign a squiggle. For all Duranies, simon le bon and Taylor's sig would be probably £30- 60 if its a full and legible and large sig,- and if Taylor has signed over a particularly good looking shot of him, maybe a bit more.
Thank you very much, Michelle!
I have never seen a Boy George autograph before, so I don't know if this is a good one or not.
My main problem every two pages have to be sold together, since I can't take the autographs from the album pages or they would be damaged.
I guess if someone is interested in one page I will just sell that one and include the other side as a bonus.
Regards from a hot afternoon in Rio de Janeiro!
don't have now but when I get I chance ill be happy to post some prices
but try googling ebay and rr auctions to see sold prices and whats out there as a baromitter
but the hothouse and terrance trent are very minimal valual if that helps I wouls 50 tops more like 20 to 25 on a good day
Thank you very much Marc, your input is very important to me!
I'd be interested in a Deacon and a Roger on paper if you are planning on selling?
I sent you an email.
It hasn't arrived yet.
