The 200 photos are among 3,500 previously unpublished images taken by Bob Bonis, U.S. tour manager of the Beatles and Rolling Stones during 1964 to 1966. The images were private throughout Bonis’ life and stayed hidden in his basement even after his 1992 death. Five years ago, the photos were discovered when Bob’s son, Alex Bonis, decided to disclose 10 pictures per month over the period of two years. Available through eBay’s art and collectibles store, the shots are priced at $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints up to more than $625 for 20 by 24 inch prints. They are being sold 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 organizations. The Grammy Museum also volunteered to include a certificate of authenticity with each limited-edition print, a gesture Raj Prem hopes will increase the value of the pictures and make them worth higher than their selling cost.
