Autographs often show up in eBay auctions, but autographed memorabilia is something else entirely. What makes today’s remarkable listings standouts is that every item pertains to music and every item features autographs by several rock and pop stars.
If you’ve been rocking out and shouting along to “Ho Hey” for the past year – and we think you might have been since the video has over 40 million hits on YouTube – you’ll be psyched to see this GF The Lumineers Autographed REMO Drumhead:
Not only do you get this 18-inch drumhead with autographs by Jeremiah, Neyla, and Wesley, but you also receive an original doodle of an armadillo, done by one of the band members.
Rolling Stone singled out “Ho Hey” as one of the top songs of 2012. See what all the fuss is about on the clip below.
As is often the case in these high-profile auctions, the proceeds from the sale benefit a worthy cause. The Lumineers’ collectible is one of several eBay auctions with sales supporting MusiCares and GRAMMY Foundation, organizations concerned with human service issues, particularly those impacting people involved in the music community.
Coldplay members Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion, and Chris Martin are offering a piece of “Paradise” with this microphone featuring their signatures. If you don’t win this, you could be living out their hit, “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.”
This next collectible represents the coming together of an incredible group of solo artists and bands. Check out this MC GRAMMY Sting Neil Young Elton John Mumford & Sons Tim McGraw Signed Guitar:
The backstory, according to the listing, is that “…this star studded guitar was signed backstage during rehearsals of the 2013 MusiCares® Person of the Year Tribute, honoring Bruce Springsteen. This tribute dinner and concert was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on February 8, 2013. Autographs were received by performers, presenters and other VIP celebrity guests.”
Regular readers of this blog had the chance to win tickets to the Bruce Springsteen tribute event, memorialized in our post entitled Tickets for the Springsteen Person of the Year experience. We’d love to hear the first hand experiences from the winner of that auction!
The Epiphone holds signatures by the aforementioned artists as well as the Alabama Shakes, Zac Brown, Jackson Browne, Kenny Chesney, Ben Harper, Emmylou Harris, Faith Hill, Jim James, Juanes, John Legend, Natalie Maines, Tom Morello, Patti Smith, and Mavis Staples. Fans know a one-of-a-kind item when they see one. Eleven bids have brought the asking price up to $1,225.
It’s heartening to see these artists putting their good names to use for an important cause, enough to make us want to Lift Every Voice and Sing!
