French Beatles Fan Selling His 15,000-Piece Memorabilia Collection

December 21, 2016
French Beatles superfan Jacques Volcouve is set to sell 15,000 records, signed books, posters, autographs, figurines and memorabilia from a personal collection he's spent 50 years building.

In an interview with The Observer, Volcouve (now in his 60s) is hoping to bring in "enough money to live on decently" for the duration of his days because maintaining the collection became "an octopus whose tentacles were strangling me."
