Guitar Signed by The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Other Artists in the TCM-Bonhams March 27 Auction

Last I heard, there were no genuine, intact Beatles-signed guitars known. The only one was reportedly destroyed in a Malibu, Calif. landslide about 15 years ago.



RR Auction sold one a Beatles signed guitar around 2010, but the owner had tapped the autographs down with an awl to, um, "preserve them."…

In the mid-1920's there was an autograph auction craze over Button Gwinnett documents and the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. Because only 49 signatures of Gwinnett were known to exist at the time, prices reached over $15,000 for the rare signer from Georgia.

Unknown Band-Signed "Meet the Beatles" Album Surfaces in Antiques Auction, Sells for $63,250

Beatles history was made on May 21. On that day, Case Antiques, a regional art and antiques auction house in Knoxville, Tenn., sold a previously unknown "Meet the Beatles" album, signed by the Fab Four.

It wasn't the price that made history. At $63,250 including the buyer's premium, the price was good, considering it was the only music piece offered in an antique and art auction, but not a particularly strong. The Hard Rock auctioned a similar one around a decade ago for about…

Want to Buy a Famous Casket? Me Neither...

I understood when people bought sections of the parque floor the Boston Celtics played on. I've seen parts of the floor the Bruins played on, signed by John Wooden and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (side note: wonder if anyone asked the big fella to sign Lew Alcindor while he was Kareem. I know Ali would sometimes sign as Cassius Clay after the name change).

Anywhoooo....I just saw that the wooden coffin Lee Harvey Oswald was buried in will be auctioned. And the wackos at the auction…

Buying and Selling at Auction—A Primer Part I

By way of introduction, I'm Bill Panagopulos, founder and president of Alexander Autographs, Inc., an autograph auction house in Stamford, Ct.

Since those early days of paper bid sheets, one telephone… Continue

Princess Diana's Dress (Galileo, Galileo, Galileo finger ohhhhhh)

In London, a black gown that's a bit on the racy side, sold for more than $275,000. Lady Di wore it on one of her first official engagements, and a Chilean fashion museum snatched it up. But who wouldn't, at such a great price!

The dress caused a minor scandal when she was pictured wearing it to an event in 1981, but not nearly as controversial as Monica's blue dress (which I'm still surprised hasn't hit the auction block).

Apparently royals aren't supposed to…
