Fans pop in with souvenirs that could rock your world
Hidden at the back of a cupboard, or safely stored in the loft, many of us have the odd LP or concert programme we have looked at over the years and wondered if it’s valuable.Armed with treasured memorabilia, music fans packed themselves into the city’s Hard Rock Cafe yesterday to have their questions answered – and some were in for a surprise. Signed Beatles programmes, posters for the first ever Police gig and an old photograph of Ronnie Biggs on a Brazilian beach were among the items valued in the George Street restaurant by expert auctioneers from Bonhams.http://www.scotsman.com/news/health/fans_pop_in_with_souvenirs_that_could_rock_your_world_1_1912557
