I wonder if Paul is the anonymous British collector.  

My guess would be yes. It was my first thought when i read that, anyway. It does seem like the kind of thing he'd buy.

As for that shirt with John's blood on it -- no, thank you *shudders*. Too macabre for my taste.

LOL! Creepy indeed. But I think the shirt wasn't on John, it was the doorman's shirt. He was helping John thus getting the blood on it. John had a dark knit shirt on and a jacket, iirc.

If this was a normal (if i can use that word here) murder victims blood everyone would be aghast at the auction, because its someone as famous as John it's let slide.

I just hope it goes to someone who will appreciate it.

EDIT: The shirt sold for £31,000 ($40,819). http://www.tv3.ie/xpose/articl.....over-40000 Again, an anonymous buyer. Yoko? Paul?

Maybe people would rather cough up some dough for this Sgt Pepper album. John, Paul, and George signed it back in '67. The guy was lucky enough to get Ringo's signature on it in '99. So if you have a extra £40,000 or more languishing in your bank account, you can bid on it and then pass it around among all of us faithful forumpudlians.

John Lennon 's 1956 Austin Princess is up for grabs. http://www.irishexaminer.com/b.....46518.html

from the article

A defining feature of the car is its five aeroplane seats, which were added by John and are still in the car today.

The buyer will also receive the original vehicle registration and title document, complete with John’s signature from the original purchase.

I love these lines from the article:

John was a member of The Beatles alongside Paul McCartney , Ringo Starr and George Harrison .

He later went on to enjoy a successful solo career before he was murdered in New York in 1980 by [should be named here but I prefer a-hole].

I love how they try to tell their readership who John and The Beatles were in two lines, just for those who may not know.

Julien's Auctions have put up the catalogue for the "Property From The Collection of Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach" auction that will take place on 3 December on their website. 1367 lots of Ringo's stuff to look through.

In among the Beatles stuff is the White Album  No. 0000001, long believed to have nabbed by John (including by Paul):

Ringo-White-Album.jpgImage Enlarger

  

Ringo entered the Guinness Book of World Record with this sale. Most expensive album ever sold at auction

Guinness-most-expensive-album-white-album-beatles-ringo.jpgImage Enlarger

A copy of The Beatles' 1968 "White Album " sold for $790,000 USD at Julien's Live Auction in December 2015. That's officially the most expensive record ever sold at auction, Guinness World Records confirms in its 2017 edition — more than double the $305,000 Elvis Presley acetate that previously held the title.

Now, before you're like: "my mom's got one of those downstairs" or "I saw, like, 20 copies at the flea market last weekend" or "I'm using one of those as a coaster for my bubbler," know that this was a very special copy. Stamped with the serial number "0000001," it's the very first pressing, long thought to belong to John Lennon , but actually, kept in a bank vault in London by that sneaky Ringo Starr for more than 35 years.

It was expected to fetch between $40,000 and $60,000 USD after numbers 0000005 sold for $30,000 in 2008 and 0000023 got $13,750 in 2012, but the gavel price smashed all estimates, raising a handsome sum for Starr's charity benefitting social welfare, The Lotus Foundation.

Maybe a Beatles tribue act want to snatch this one up: a 1964 John Lennon suit

Featuring a gray houndstooth pattern, the woollen suit was worn by the music icon in 1964 while performing with The Beatles. It was designed by the band’s tailor Douglas Millings and features two handwritten labels marked ‘John’ on the breast pocket interior and on the trousers.

Liz Webster, 74, from Hampshire, collected the signatures after a gig in Nottingham when she barged her way into their dressing room.

Ms Webster, a retired insurance clerk, said the band gave her and her friend Judy a warm welcome following their gig at the Elizabethan Ballroom in the Co-Op Building, in Nottingham...

Please Please Me was in the charts but the ballroom was half empty. There must have been about 100 people there.

There were about a dozen girls hanging around outside their dressing room.

Judy was the forceful one and she led the way as we barged our way through saying 'excuse me, excuse me'. There was no security.

The autographs have a guide price of between £4,000 and £6,000.

Joe's entry for 7 March 1963 says that Brian bused 80 fans from Liverpool to this show (about a 2.5 hour drive each way). So, if there were only about 100 people there, then only about 20 people from the Nottingham area showed up. Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Big Three, Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas also played there that night. I wonder if they were counted in Liz's number a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 

Oh, Judy is my hero! You go, girl.

The first time The Beatles were played on the radio is believed to have been when Love Me Do  was played by Radio Luxembourg. The advance copy of the single that was played, now owned by DJ Tony Prince, is being auctioned by Omega Auctions on 28 January 2020, valued at between £15,000-£20,000.

Radio-Luxembourg-Love-Me-Do.jpgImage Enlarger

THE BEATLES RADIO LUXEMBOURG 'FIRST EVER' PLAYED COPY OF Love Me Do . An incredible piece of music history. This the Radio Luxembourg library copy of 'Love Me Do ', this being the very 7" played by Radio Luxembourg DJs during the period. RL is widely acknowledged to be the first of the radio stations to give the Beatles airtime and were crucial in launching the Fab Four on their way to superstardom. The framed display includes a demonstration copy of the record (45-R 4949) with visible A side seemingly in Ex condition (with incorrect McArtney spelling) and with label signed in blue ink by Paul McCartney . Also a 1994 telex sent from MPL to Tony Prince with body to read 'Dear Tony, I'm happy to confirm that i first heard 'Love Me Do ' (our first release) on Radio Luxembourg. Did I ever thank you for playing it? if not, I do now. Cheers, All the very best' with signature (facsimile) by Paul McCartney . Frame measures 28 x 18".
