Rock Memorabiliast Garry Schrum Joins Trev at 9
What’s the best piece of Rock memorabilia you own? Would you like to find out what it’s really worth?
Tonight at 9 Garry Schrum, Consignment Director of Entertainment and Music Memorabilia for Heritage Auctions is coming into the New Jersey 101.5 studios to discuss the upcoming auction of a large piece of stage backdrop from the Ed Sullivan Show autographed by the Beatles during their historic appearance February 9th 1964. It’s expected to sell for between $800,000 and $1,000,000.
During that same weekend (Saturday, April 26 & Sunday, April 27), an actual size reprint of that wall will be on display at the PA Spring Music Explosion at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center where attendees can take their picture next to this incredible replica from a key part of rock & roll history.
There is no more important band in rock and roll than The Beatles and there was no moment more important in solidifying their worldwide popularity than the moment they played Ed Sullivan on Feb. 9, 1964,” said Garry Shrum, Consignment Director of Music Memorabilia at Heritage Auctions. “Now, almost 50 years to the day since it was signed, this piece has emerged from private hands and is looking to take its rightful place as the single-most important piece of Beatles memorabilia in existence.” ”Holy Grail is a term bandied about in memorabilia circles far too much,” said Shrum, “but in this case, it’s hard to argue with the designation. This thing really is the Holy Grail of Beatles memorabilia. It’s simply the best Beatles-signed piece there is.” http://entertainment.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=7089&lotIdNo=51001
