[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 01/27/10 1:28 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
A multi-estate sale was held last weekend, January 22 through 24 by Philip Weiss Auctions.
At the sale, a page from the 1964 Beatles USA, Ltd. tour program, beautifully signed by all four Beatles and personally inscribed to the late pianist Liberace, soared to $15,800. In their light-hearted way, the Beatles signed the 12 inch by 12 inch page "to Liber-Archie" as a play on words. The photo on the page depicts the band wearing their winter coats, standing atop a wall.
Among other items at the sale, the original marriage certificate of Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley dated May 26, 1994, sold for $70,800.
The weekend extravaganza, at which around 1,300 lots changed hands from a variety of categories in a sale that grossed more than $700,000, was held in Philip Weiss Auctions' gallery facility located in Oceanside, New York.
