We Love Free Stuff, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Accoding to The Desert Sun, Arizona couple Marie Ann and Richard Ashcraft have, over the last 40 years, amassed a collection of more than 2,000 items worth about $100,000, including Beatles lunch boxes, wigs, album covers and even board games. That’s a lot of Beatles promos, and they’ve appreciated in value over the years. One example:

“The pink mini-guitar was sold in 1964 for about $1.29. Today it is worth about $400, but the true treasure is the mini-mini guitar enclosed in a glass frame. The mini-mini guitar was a promotional item offered only to record stores and those in the industry, which makes it worth about $1,500 today.”
