Barnebys.com, the leading online search service for arts, antiques and collectibles, is bringing iconic photography of music legends, the Rolling Stones, to art collectors and music lovers alike. Images of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the rest of the band members, on stage and at play, are now available at reasonable prices – including rare photography of the band by the heralded celebrity photographer Terry O’Neill.
When it comes to music memorabilia, experts say now is the time to buy. Rolling Stones collectibles are now available through Barnebys.com – the world’s fastest growing online auction search engine – for less than $100.
In stark contrast to the record-breaking $2.7 million paid in 2005 for a guitar signed by Keith Richards and several other fellow rockers, online auctions provide greater access and more affordable ways for fans to own a piece of rock and roll royalty.
“While there are many rare items that have sold for extraordinary prices, there are also less expensive ways to own a piece of celebrity,” says Pontus Silfverstolpe, auction expert and co-founder of Barnebys.com. “In a world fascinated by fame, memorabilia from popular musical artists is now highly sought after.”
With major auctions of rock and pop music collectibles hosted by London and New York auction houses, these photos, along with signed guitars, programs, rare albums and autographs from the Rolling Stones and other artists, will be available through Barnebys.com running through July 28th.
Among the Rolling Stones items currently available for auction:
- “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” original RIAA white matte gold 45 record award. Estimate: $7,000 – $9,000
- Signed Bridges to Babylon Album. Estimate: $3,000 – $4,000
- Original Vintage Concert Tour Pins. Estimate: $300 – $500
- 8 x 10 black and white original photograph. Estimate: $75 – $125
