Rare photos of The Rolling Stones are available for auction through Barnebys.com.
Images of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the rest of the bandmembers, on stage and at play, are now available – including rare photography of the band by Terry O’Neill.
Check out the photos at the Barnebys.com website.
The Rolling Stones collectible photos are available through Barnebys.com, some 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 access and 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,” said 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,” Silfverstolpe said.
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 beginning today and running through July 28th.
