Rock and Roll Auction at www.prwauctions.com on Jan. 23 features rare Beatles Memorabillia.
The Beatles are extremely popular with 3 generations of fans. And some items have proven to be great investments. There were some very lucky fans
who got to meet the Beatles in the early days when they were accessible. Those fans were smart enough, or brave enough, to ask for their signatures.
