Ringo Starr collectibles
Ringo Starr (born Richard Starkey, 7th July 1940, Liverpool, England) was the drummer for The Beatles, the most successful rock band of the 20th century.
Before and after The Beatles
Prior to replacing The Beatles’ original drummer, Pete Best, Ringo Starr played drums with Rory Storm and The Hurricanes from 1959 until 1962.
After The Beatles, Ringo had a solo recording career, releasing hits such as "It Don't Come Easy" and "Photograph." He also appeared in movies, including The Magic Christian (1969) and 200 Motels (1971). In 1988 he was nominated for an Emmy for his role as Mr. Conductor in the children's television show Shining Time Station.
Since 1990, Starr has occasionally performed and recorded with Ringo And The All-Starr Band, which sometimes included his son, Zak Starkey.
In 2008, Ringo told fans he'd stop accepting mail requests for autographs. He was previously famous for replying to all requests.
With The Beatles
‘The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper Souvenir Poster’ is a highly notable item of music memorabilia, dating from 1967.
Autographed by Ringo and his fellow three Beatles, it sold at auction for $52,500 in June 2009 at Christie’s New York.
Solo signed autographs
Although a prolific signer until 2008, Starr’s decision to stop signing autographs is likely to boost their value – with some appearing on the market priced at around £1,000.
In 2011, Bristol, UK-based collectibles dealer Paul Fraser Collectibles listed an autographed photo of Starr measuring 10 x 8 for sale priced at £950.
