Ringo Starr's jacket from The Beatles' 'Help!' sells for more than $46k at auction

BOSTON, MASS.- Ringo Starr’s screen-worn jacket from the 1965 film ‘Help!’ sold for $46,527 according to Massachusetts - based RR Auction .

The dapper black wool double-breasted suit jacket bears soft gray vertical line patterns, a keystone layout of six black buttons, and four more on the end of each cuff. A D.A. Millings & Sons label sewn inside the inner right pocket, “Ringo,” and a costume notation on the upper lining of the right sleeve that reads, “Ringo No. 1.”

The suit jacket was worn during a pivotal scene in the bands second full-length feature film, in which Ringo frets over a ring secretly entrusted to him by Ahme, a mysterious high priestess. Once confronted and told of the danger the sacrificial ring carries, Ringo desperately tries to remove it, but is unable. Only with the help of his fellow Beatles and the beautiful Ahme does Ringo find the means and courage to unfasten the accursed red jewel.

“It’s a highly desirable piece of rock–cinema history,” said Bobby Livingston, Executive VP at RR Auction. “Demand for rock-and-roll relics —especially among Baby Boomers with disposable income continues to be one of the fastest growing categories of collecting.”

Highlights from the sale include, but are not limited by:

• Johnny Ramone’s custom-designed Hamer guitar, sold for $49,889.

• Jimi Hendrix Experience signed album, sold for $30,711.

• Beatles signed ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ album cover, sold for $30,202.

• Jimi Hendrix signed photograph, sold for $20,371.

• Janis Joplin signed photograph, sold for $ 18,799.

• Jim Morrison signed contract to appear on American Bandstand, sold for $11,837.
