The 200 images are among 3,500 previously unpublished photos taken by Bob Bonis, U.S. tour manager of the Beatles and Rolling Stones during 1964 to 1966. The images were private property throughout 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, decided to uncover 10 pictures per month over the period of two years. Available through eBay’s art and collectibles store, the photos are priced starting from $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints up to over $625 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 also volunteered to provide a certificate of authenticity for each limited-edition print, a gesture Raj Prem notes will increase the value of the pictures and make them worth higher than their actual cost.
