Harrison's jacket drew £54,000, while the one worn by Starr sold for an incredible £61,100. Both items went to UK collectors. The jackets were worn throughout the five days of filming in the Alps and also featured on the album cover of the soundtrack.

The auction included the sale of more than 200 lots of rare Beatles' memorabilia at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool and brought in a massive £264,375. It was held to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the release of The Beatles' number one hit Can't Buy Me Love.
