Titles released on reel-to-reel have long been a prize of sorts for collectors -- especially since even in their heyday, they never sold all that well. The format was first introduced in 1949, and had pretty much died out by the early '70s. There were, however, a few random titles still being manufactured at the time, including the fifth Led Zeppelin album, 'Houses of the Holy' -- a copy of which recently sold in an eBay auction for $239.50, with a total of 46 bids coming in.
It's been decades since Mark Evans ended his brief stint in AC/DC, but he was still with the band for a number of important moments in its history, and he has the awards to prove it -- although his collection is a little smaller now.
Somebody is going to be rocking and rolling all night -- with a rare piece of Kiss memorabilia. A 1979-era toy wireless microphone emblazoned with the band's iconic logo has sold on eBay for a whopping $3,381.47 after a 26-bid scramble.
ZZ Top superfans are directed to a new eBay item: Handmade hats similar to the one Billy Gibbons wears are on sale now. They're a little pricey at $375 but, hey, everybody loves a sharp-dressed man, right?
When an original Beatles photograph is sans autograph and fetches $999.00 on eBay it’s certain to have a story behind it. This photo was taken at Palais Ballroom in Adlershot, a military town in northeast Hampshire in December 1961. The clincher; there were only 18 people in the audience and Mersey Beat photographer Dick Matthews captured the void quite vividly.
Freddie Mercury was the one who suggested that the artwork for Queen’s tenth album ‘Hot Space’ feature a graphic image of each band member in its own colored square. Bold, vibrant colors were chosen for the cover and as a result dingy record store walls across the land were suddenly beaming with a majestic hue. Recently, the complete workings of that original artwork appeared on eBay and sold for $1,750.00.
Vinyl enthusiasts regularly drop thousands of dollars on stereo equipment so they can experience the purest possible sound, but one hardcore Beatles fan just invested more than $12,000 in a remarkably rare turntable that will probably never even be used.
