If Money Were No Object, What Memorabilia Would You Buy?


Today Billboard is reporting that more Beatles memorabilia is going for big bucks. For one, "the hand-painted drum skin that appeared on the sleeve of the Beatles' ground-breaking 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band sold for $1.1 million at auction on Thursday in London, four times its estimate." Additionally, John Lennon's handwritten lyrics to the song "Give Peace a Chance" went for $834,000.

Coincidentally, I also got a notice today about the couch used as "Dylan's couch" in Beverly Hills, 90210, which is up for auction. It got me thinking: If money were no object, what kind of music, TV, and movie memorabilia would I buy?

There are plenty of costume items that totally make me drool, like that green dress from Atonement, and of course, Audrey Hepburn's lovely black number from Breakfast at Tiffany's. Plus I know plenty of women who would love to have the tutu from the opening credits of Sex and the City. As for objects, it might be fun to own some of the bar stools from Cheers or the velvety Central Perk couch from Friends. And I would personally find it amusing to own one of Bill Cosby's famous sweaters.

What about you?

I'm so not into memorabilia and I'm always fascinated by people who are because I just don't get it!

Oooh ooh! I just thought of another one: Molly Ringwald's car in Pretty In Pink. And Iona's prom dress before she mangled it to create that sack monstrosity that she ended up wearing.

Oh, I'd love to buy the One Ring or Arwen's necklace from LOTR. Audrey's classic Holly Golightly dress, too, and the couch recreated from a bathtub in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I'm a huge fan of Queen and would probably buy anything that Freddie actually touched, but I'd love to buy his house in London.

I would get a lot of things with my endless hypothetic money, but the one object I can think of is the Fred Leighton diamond necklace Carrie was given in the season 6 season finale of SATC :)

I'd love to have the Ruby Slippers from The Wizard Of Oz. I'm obsessed with Buffy as well, and I remember seeing a collectible website where they sold replicas... they had a replica of the scythe from the last season, and I was SO tempted to buy it.
northofantastic northofantastic 7 years
I would also have to go with BTVS memorabilia. Maybe the scythe or the vampyre book. Not sure. And probably Sara's bracelet off of Witchblade. I always thought it was beautiful!

Although I love SATC I don't think I could pass up Audrey memorabilia.

I would buy something that's seriously classic from the Elton John collection, like a pair of his old shades from a concert or one of his classic piano's.
