Why Beatles Bobble Heads are so Collectible
The factors that make these so high in demand
These were limited in release, first of all, and were collector's item from the beginning. However, collecting for the long term just wasn't as popular back in the 60's as it was today. People today anticipate something becoming collectible, which wasn't quite the case back when The Beatles made their debut, and when so many of these early collectibles were first on the market. That's what makes them even more rare -- no one thought to hold on to them, making them one of the most in-demand of all Beatles collectibles.
Despite being so rare, you can still find a good selection of Beatles bobble heads online. The global marketplace (Ebay) offers the best selection of fairly priced collectibles anywhere. While you're not likely to get a steal, you are going to get a piece of rock history if you bid on one of these!

Buying on Ebay can be a great experience, but you'll want to make sure that you take a few precautions first. PayPal is now required to do business on Ebay, so that will be your first line of protection. Second, you'll want to read the auction description carefully before bidding. Should you have any questions in the auction that were not answered for you, ask the seller. A good seller will get back to you in a reasonable amount of time (24 hours). Shipping costs should also be reasonable. Last, check the seller's feedback score. Click on the number next to the name of the seller to view their latest transactions and the feedback they have received from recent buyers.
Also be sure to examine the photos and ask for additional images to be furnished upon your request. This is a good way to find out exactly what it is that you're getting before you put your hard earned money on.

Five Things to Keep in Mind When Bidding on Ebay:
Before you bid on a Bobblehead, read this!
- Ask plenty of questions. The buyer should be able to answer any question you can throw at them, even if the response is "I don't know." If they have an answer of any kind, that means they have great communication, and that's key to finding a trustworthy seller.
- Have your PayPal account setup and ready. Sellers don't like to wait around for their money, so don't bid unless your PayPal account is all ready to go once you make the purchase. Besides, why bid if you're not going to pay?
- Check their feedback. Again, it's important to check the selling track record of the seller before putting down your hard earned money. A simple click to see their recent feedback will help you learn more about them.
- Don't buy from zero feedback or low feedback sellers, unless the deal is unbelievably good. Why is that? Because they could close their account and never be heard from again, and you'd be out the money if you had a problem. So, stay away from anyone with a zero next to their name unless you like to gamble.
- Don't be shy about asking for additional photos. If the seller has them, they will probably send them to you. If they don't, at least you'll get a good idea of their communication skills so you'll know what kind of treatment you can expect for the transaction as a whole.
