Elton John has earned a ton of money -- and he's bought a ton of things with it. In fact, back in September of 1988, he had so many possessions crowding his four-story English mansion that he decided to sell off 2,000 of them in a massive four-day auction at Sotheby's in London.
The seller admits, right up front, that it suffers from “tears and slight fold marks," "worn corners" and "thumb tack holes." That didn't slow a 35-bid auction that netted $1,810.00 for a tattered 1973 Led Zeppelin poster.
It took just one bid in a recent eBay auction to secure a barely used rock collectible, when a fan dropped $3,750 on a Rolling Stones pinball machine. The 2011 game, featuring the pared-down current four-piece edition of the band, includes a ramp styled after the Stones' famous tongue logo.
A signed gold-record award presented to Casablanca Records in recognition of selling 500,000 copies of Kiss' eponymous 1974 album has fetched $2,500 on eBay, after being featured on a June 2013 episode of TV's 'Pawn Stars.'
