a-hard-days-night-john-3I've got alot of Beatles crap...

I've got a bunch of 1964 trading cards of my mother's. Must be the whole friggin' set, she had so many! And I've got some trading cards from like 1997 or something. I also got all of her picture books and fanzines that she kept through the years. I've got several coffee mugs of different albums and a Sgt. Pepper afghan blanket.

But, the real jewel of my collection was a gift from my father (both parents were huge Beatles fans).

He is a retired postmaster (please Mr. Postman) and while he was still working, he collected stamps since he had access to all types. When I was but a boy he came across an international stamp magazine that featured some Beatle stamps from the Republic of Chad, Africa. Well, God love him, he ordered me the whole set!

They are paintings, even a few by Voorman, of the band and some individual paintings of John and Paul. A few sheets are just regular, though very colorful, rows of stamps. But a few are full paintings where just the face of each member are the stamps. There's even one painting of Paul with his rickenbacker 4001S FG psychedelic bass as seen in the "All You Need Is Love " broadcast! And a few pics of John as a child.

Needless to say, those stamps will never see the inside of a mailbox!


 

Wow... just wow. I would love to see those. You're a lucky guy (I presume). "Beatles crap", you say?

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
Or buy my paperback/ebook! Riding So High – The Beatles and Drugs

Don't miss The Bowie Bible – now live!

Those look like good questions. I hate personality quizes where the questions are obvious and you can pick the result you want. I found a quiz that you might be able to use: Which Beatle Are You? I took it and was surprised to find that I'm a John! So much for knowing myself.

I would love to have the pinball machine they showed at the end. It would go very nicely in my game room. Apparently one just like it was auctioned off online. They don't give the winning bid amount however.
