Most of the larger auctions containing the 'fantasy' Beatles items out of our reach, are normally held in London, New York & Tokyo but here in the North West of England we have Omega Auctions based in Newton-Le-Willows.
It's one of the top auction houses worldwide for music memorabilia and vinyl records.
I'd love to be able to go to a Beatles auction with a big lottery win in my bank account or an unlimited Credit Card you never have to pay back but alas as you read this article that isn't the case.
Omega have held some thrilling auctions including a three part sale on behalf of Radio Luxembourg DJ Tony Prince. The highlight of the collection was the first played copy of the Beatles 'Love Me Do' single.yours for the 'princely' sum of £17,000.
Omega hold fairly frequent auctions of Beatles Collections, items sold include:
On the 28th October 2020 there's an ONLINE only Beatles Collection auction with 256 Lots of Beatles & solo vinyl LP's, books, including a signed 'Grapefruit' book by John & Yoko, posters, tickets, signed Genesis books and Paul McCartney & Wings autographs.
The highlight though has to be several items from Joe Flannery's estate including nine early Beatles contracts & letters signed by Brian Epstein. The lot numbers are 156 / 236 - 240 / 242 / 244 - 245.
Now where's that Credit card...
