Sold at auction a half-smoked cigar butt stubbed out by Churchill, went for 4,500! It's incredible what people will pay for memorabilia. An Aston Martin driven by Pierce Brosnan sold for 157,000, whereas an 'ordinary' Aston would be worth between 40,000 and 60,000. Clarke Gable character mug 5,000, a paperback book of Gone With The Wind, signed by Vivien Leigh, bought in a second hand shop for 2 probably worth a small fortune now. Collectors with excess cash who don't want 'traditional' art are combing the internet for this memorabilia.

Folk will always pay over the odds for memorabilia.Some folk bought Star Wars toys and never took them out the box.

Couldn't say, but I do know that a letter written by John Lennon to an Indian fan while he was studying meditation there fetched $14,000!
