Beatles collectibles up for auction in Croydon

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

BEATLES memorabilia and a handbag signed by astronaut Neil Armstrong are to go on auction in Croydon. The sale includes a 1964 NEMS record player, which is one of the earliest pieces of Beatles merchandise. Only 5,000 were made and, while they rarely come up for sale, one has been listed for Catherine Southon’s next auction at The Chateau in Shirley Hills on March 26.

The record player features a print of the Fab Four as well as facsimile autographs. Though it is not in mint condition, it is estimated the record player will fetch between £1,000 and £2,000. A boxed set of car mascot ‘Bobbin Head’ Beatles dolls is expected to sell for up to £400. The set is in its original, slightly damaged box, and the dolls, which are around eight inches tall, are popular with collectors. The third and final piece of Beatles merchandise is a 1964 Dutch polka dot mini dress in beige and white with the faces of John, Paul, George and Ringo printed on it. It is in very good condition and could sell for £250.
