On July 3rd, Beatles buffs will be day-tripping to the Mirage Hotel and Casino for the Las Vegas Beatles Memorabilia Auction, an event expected to bring in more than $1 million in Beatles mementos.
But if youre interested in getting your hands on the legendary bands booty all you need is love and money.
According to auction organizer Marc Zakarin, the memorabilia rocks the gamut from Beatles hair spray and dolls all the way to a Sgt. Peppers signed album and John Lennons tunic, estimated to be worth $500,000.
And while Zakarin has some beloved Beatles treasures like concert posters and autographs, his most prized possession comes from his pops.
Zakarin says, I went to Woodstock in 1969, and my dad made me sign a paper that said I will not drive over 55, I will not go to a riot, and I will not drink beer. It looked like The Declaration of Independence.
