Stereo "Please Please Me" Sells Big @ Auction

Monday, March 25, 2013

An original stereo copy of “Please Please Me” sold for 7,552 pounds, or $11,500 US—50 years to the day the record was released.

Presented in a frame with a set of autographs on a magazine page featuring the Fab Four, it was one of 280 lots of Beatles memorabilia being offered in an anniversary sale at Omega Auctions in Stockport, Lancashire, about 40 miles east of Liverpool. According to the company, the buyer was based in the UK.

The auction’s other stand-out result was the 27,140 pounds given for a collection of 64 color slides of the Beatles taken in August 1964 by Robert Beck.

The buyer was a prominent South American collector of Beatles memorabilia, based in Washington D.C., who also owns John Lennon’s Oscar for “Let It Be,” Omega Auctions said.
