Here you will find "songs, pictures and stories" of some of the rarest and most unique Beatles collectibles to turn up in the marketplace. Assembled from the archives of some of the largest and rarest Beatles collections in the world, and with the assistance of many long-time and noted Beatles experts, this site features everything from original records and picture sleeves to memorabilia, documents, autographs, original artwork, alternate covers, unpublished photos, and much more. You will find information on this web site that is available nowhere else. The six main contributors to this site have well over 100 years of combined Beatles collecting experience! Hundreds of other fans and collectors have contributed as well.
The main purpose of this Beatles "on-line gallery" is to share our collections, knowledge, experiences, and hobby with other Beatles fans throughout the world. We want to provide and offer assistance and expertise in the search and acquisition of Beatles collectibles by providing invaluable information such as current market value price guides, photographs & descriptions, variation details, comparison of counterfeits and reissues, and other interesting and fun facts.
Even though extremely fun and rewarding, collecting the Beatles can be very challenging and complicated due to the thousands of different records and products manufactured throughout the world, including multiple pressings, reissues and seemingly endless variations. As prices on many pieces continue to skyrocket, it becomes more important to know exactly what you are buying, selling or perhaps trading. We will be concentrating on featuring as much information, advice and guidance in this regard. Even if you don't "collect", you'll be fascinated by the thousands of Beatles rarities and photographs featured on this site. Many obscure and previously undocumented collectibles have been showcased here for the first time anywhere, certain to appear in future price guides and books. With the technology of the Internet, we are able to stay up to date with the latest information and advice for collectors.
Many of the images on this site can be "clicked on" to display larger sizes in order to show greater detail and clarity. The advantages, besides the visual appeal to serious Beatlefans and collectors, include the ability to compare and authenticate early pressings from later pressings, originals from reissues, and fakes from originals. Great efforts are taken to provide as high of quality as possible for the images. We continuously add, update and make other improvements to this site.
