A Christie’s auction house employee holds a previously unseen photograph of the first US performance of The Beatles at the Washington Coliseum in 1964 during the press view of the forthcoming sale of ‘The Beatles Illuminated: The Discovered Works of Mike Mitchell’ in central London, on June 10, 2011. The photograph is expected to fetch between GBP 1,200-1,800 (dollars 2,000-3,000 or euros 1,370-2,050 ) when it is auctioned in New York on July 20, 2011.

From rare finds like a lyrics sheet for their song “Hey Jude” (in Paul McCartney‘s handwriting!), to wacky tie hangers (wacky, but practical for today’s businessman), many items have been up for bid for a pretty penny or two… or three… or thousand(s).CLICK through the gallery to see many of the amazing/crazy items that have been put up for auction!http://wcbsfm.radio.com/2011/11/16/from-awesome-to-strange-beatles-auction-items-photos/#photo-1
