The 200 images make up 3,500 unseen photos shot by Bob Bonis, who served as U.S. tour manager for the Beatles and Rolling Stones from 1964 to 1966, notes Raj Prem. They remained private through Bonis’ life and stayed undiscovered in his home following his demise in 1992. Five years ago, the photos saw the light of day as Alex Bonis, Bob’s son, decided to roll out 10 pictures per month over the course of two years. Purchased through eBay’s art and collectibles store, the photos run from $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints all the way up to $625 or higher for 20 by 24 inch prints. They are bought outright rather than auctioned, with 10% of the proceeds benefitting the Grammy Foundation, the Grammy Museum, and other top organizations. The Grammy Museum has volunteered to provide a certificate of authenticity with the limited-edition prints, which Prem believes can increase the value of the prints and make them worth more than eBay price.
