In the more than 40 years since their breakup, the Beatles have always used their hand-picked team of insiders to tell the story of the legendary group. However, for the first time, a new documentary will rely heavily on material submitted by their fans.
It's not just the Beatles' albums that can be incredibly valuable, but also some of the artwork associated with them. The original collage that was reproduced and included in copies of their 1967 classic 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' record has sold for $87,720 on Tuesday (Nov. 13).

A one-of-a-kind collaborative painting that the Beatles worked on during their 1966 visit to Tokyo has been unboxed after spending over 20 years under its owner's bed -- and now it's headed for the auction block.
