Today we depart a bit from vintage holiday items, to a rare and wonderful find from a previous auction at Croton's own SERIOUSTOYZ.COM - Selcol in England released this totally 'fab' Ringo drum set in 1964 during the height of Beatlemania.
The drum skin features Ringo’s face,
his hands holding a drumstick, and his printed autograph....The original cardboard box contains the inner cardboard packing
and the “New Beat” paper label with the Beatles faces and the “Ringo
Starr Drum Set” label on the top.
The set sold for $3,360 at auction. Click on the photo; stay tuned for tuned for upcoming auction news.
