The black-wool double-breasted suit jacket that Ringo Starr wore in the 1965 Beatles movie Help! has sold at auction for more than $46,500.
Boston-based RR Auction announced Friday, July 24, that the jacket with soft gray vertical pinstripes, six black buttons and the name “Ringo” sewn inside was part of the online Marvels of Modern Music auction that closed Thursday.
RR said the buyer is “a top rock ‘n’ roll collector in Rhode Island,” but the company did not disclose a name.
Other items sold in the auction included a Hamer guitar custom-made in Connecticut for Johnny Ramone that sold for almost $50,000; a signed Jimi Hendrix Experience album cover for almost $31,000; a signed Janis Joplin photograph for almost $19,000; and a contract signed by Jim Morrison agreeing to appear on American Bandstand for nearly $12,000.
