Timeless Audrey Hepburn‘s value is unquestionable, even on a stamp! Her smiley face, her big, smart, bold eyes see through you even if she’s doing it from a tiny piece of printed paper!
Five copies of Audrey Hepburn stamps have been issued in 2001 featuring a print that has been destroyed by Audrey Hepburn’s son who refused to grant copyright for this cigarette holding picture. (such a relief to see people still care and fight against smoking!) While cashing in $93,000 for selling the stamp, the seller has been advised by Hepburn’s son to donate for cancer research or anti smoking campaigns. (the story continues right after the jump!)
The other auction smackdown participant is The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper souvenir poster, autographed by the band members. Dating from 1967 (Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album), this iconic item from a recent Christie’s auction was sold for almost $50,000. (the two auctions took place in different locations, on different dates. I drew an imaginary parallel between the two because of the iconic value of the objects placed for bidding.)
