ATLANTA – At the start of each month, ACN columnist Ken Hall gathers top auction highlights from around the United States and beyond. Here’s what made headlines since last month’s Gallery Report. All prices include the buyer’s premium.
Beatles Shea Stadium poster, $137,500, Heritage Auctions
A rare 1966 concert poster from the Beatles’ performance at Shea Stadium in New York sold for $137,500 at an Entertainment Auction held April 4 by Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas. It was the most ever paid for a concert poster at a public auction. Also, a Buddy Holly & The Crickets concert poster, promoting a Winter Dance Party concert in Mankato, Minn., just days before the plane crash that took the lives of Holly, the Big Bopper (P.J. Richardson Jr.) and Richie Valens, brought $125,000.
