Hey folks,

I'm lucky enough to have a Beatles concert ticket from October '63 (inherited from my uncle, who was at the concert). I'd love to display the ticket in some way (e.g. in a small frame or case or something), but feel very conscious of light-damage etc. Is there some 'standard' or sensible way of displaying original ticket stubs that provides a comprise of exhibition and protection simultaneously?

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Wow, that's impressive! (But how could you post that without scanning a copy to display for us??)

Anyway, I'm not an expert; but I would think that keeping it behind glass in a regular frame wouldn't do it much harm, so long as it's kept out of direct sunlight.

I have had this dilemma before myself.. The solution?  I bought some Non-Reflective glass for my frames.. Now going on 17 years displayed, and as bright as the day I framed it a-hard-days-night-george-10

Thanks very much guys, that sounds ideal.

Vonbontee, I don't have a scanner - the ticket stub's from their Glasgow show, October 5th '63, and thankfully still in decent condition. My uncle - about 16 at the time - came home with what was left of his shirt in shreds after the girls round him, in their hysteria, ripped it without even realising. I also read a report of the gig which said someone nearly got away with stealing George's Rickenbacker from the tour van outside. Hee hee.

There's a guy here selling a ticket to the Beatles' first and only concert in the Philippines, it was originally worth 20 Pesos or around 10 dollars during those time. He's selling it for 500,000 Pesos or $20,000 dollars.

 HOLY Golden Slumbers !! That is crazy!!  I could never sell my memorabilia.. It means so much to me. I think that people who 'cash in' on the items they have, arent true lovers of the band hey... Like, if this was in YOUR possession, could you EVER sell it?

Wowsers. I think mine is only worth something like £150 - peanuts -, but I couldn't think of selling (short of financial catastrophe), it's the sentimental value that's the thing, and the passion for the band.

Hey, I could sell it EASILY for that kind of money! Well OK, not "easily", but still. Particularly if I really needed the money. And I don't think that diminishes my love for this band at all. My ultimate allegiance is to the band's MUSIC, not the fetishization of paraphenalia surrounding them. Really, I'd much rather own something like a CD box of the complete "Get Back " sessions. I think a ticket stub would be fairly cool to own, but I personally wouldn't pay more than a few hundred dollars for one, unless it was a particularly important show like Candlestick Park; or unless I bought it as a financial investment.

If anyone wants to offer me $200,000 for my beatle collection i'll start packing now. I'll consider never listening to them again for a cool £1million.

Everything fades in sunlight to one degree or another.

Yes, some forms of glass are more protective than others. If you're really concerned, you keep it in a drawer and you pull it out when people come over.

Here's what I've done with a ticket to their last concert (San Francisco): I made a color photocopy and framed it.

The original is in a safety deposit box.

No one can tell.

I got a couple of things professionally framed recently - signed prints by Peter Blake and Eduardo Paolozzi (my aunt knew him - he was Stuart Sutcliffe's tutor in Hamburg). Anyway, the framer put them under special glass (don't know precisely what, sorry), and also mounted them on non-acidic paper. If you speak to a decent framer they'll know what to do, and don't try to do it cheaply if it's a valuable item.

Thanks.

It seems the conservation glass in question is called Tru View (possibly other brands are available). That's a good point also about being mounted on acid-free paper.
