The 200 images are part of a collection of 3,500 previously unpublished photos taken by Bob Bonis, U.S. tour manager of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones during 1964, 1965, and 1966. The images were kept undercover Bonis’ life and stayed unseen in his basement even after his death in 1992. It wasn’t until five years ago that the photos were discovered when Bob’s son, Alex Bonis, made the decision to uncover 10 pictures per month over the period of two years. Available at eBay’s art and collectibles store, the photos are priced starting from $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints up to $625 or more for 20 by 24 inch prints. They have been made available on a first-come-first-serve basis rather than through an auction and 10% of the proceeds will benefit the Grammy Foundation, the Grammy Museum, and other celebrated charities. The Grammy Museum will provide a certificate of authenticity for each limited-edition print, a gesture Raj Prem notes will spike the value of the pictures and make them worth higher than their actual cost.
