I spent alot of time the other day online drooling over Beatles memorabilia from the early 60's and I thought, "Perfect topic for Beatles Bible!". So here I am!

My question is, Do you guys own any pieces of these rare novelties? If not, which ones do you want to own?

I'm kinda going after the Milton Bradley "Flip Your Wig" board game

I'm not really a memorabilia guy - at least not yet. More sole work, vinyls and books more my way now.

The opposite of Mean Mr Mustard.

Have a great deal of that stuff. Love it. Have Yellow Submarine thermos.

Even better, Yellow Submarine Nabisco cereal boxes.

But a bunch of fakes out there...

The only original merch I've got from the 60's are their records. Most of them are re-issues but I do have a few originals.

I have seen Beatles Talcum Powder aswell as Beatles Mothballs. What will they think of next?
