It’s been 50 years since The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, an album widely considered to be among the best rock albums of all time, and aside from a very cool documentary about the making of Sgt Pepper (which was released on Septembers 8th) some cool collectible memorabilia is also making its way to the market. In honor of this exciting anniversary, 3D design company Lovepop have released The Beatles Sgt. Pepper 3D Card! This gorgeous design was created in partnership with The Beatles and is one of three officially licensed designs that include a fabulous 3D rendering of the Yellow Submarine, and the iconic scene of The Beatles crossing Abbey Road.
I suspect you may feel the need to own these. The Beatles‘ cards sell for $15 each or $40 for a pack of all three designs, and can be purchased at This Link!
The Beatles are credited with being the first to do many things such as printing lyrics on a pop album, creating music videos and holding a stadium concert, but most bizarre is their role in the “devil horns” hand gesture taking off. John Lennon’s cartoon figure on the Yellow Submarine cover is apparently the first time the symbol was on the cover of an album and is one of the earliest instances associated with a rock band, ever.
We all live in a Yellow-Infinti-Marine! From what I can gather by doing a rough Google Translation of the Portuguese text on the above-linked site, this custom-designed Infinti SUV was created by an unnamed Russian Beatles fan in the style of the iconic designs created for The Beatles‘ Yellow Submarine album and film by artist and illustrator Heinz Edelmann.
Okay, judging from the multiple layers this is probably a Wedding cake, dontcha think? It may be a Birthday cake, but whatever the occasion, it is the Greatest Cake Ever in the Universe of All Time, because The Beatles! I bet it tastes delicious also, but, honestly, it is almost too cool to eat!
Christmas is awesome and so are The Beatles, so when you combine the two your head could just explode with awesomeness. How about decorating your tree this year with a garland of tiny glowing Yellow Submarines? So Awesome.

A one-of-a-kind Yellow Submarine Custom Schwinn Stingray Bike is currently up for auction at eBay and it is a pretty sweet ride. Donated by The Beatles and Apple Corps, this limited edition Schwinn Krate, Sting-ray model Yellow Submarine bicycle was created for promotional use in 1999 and was never sold publicly. The bicycle features the beautiful Yellow Submarine artwork and brings you the unique opportunity to own a rare piece of The Beatles memorabilia. The bike is part of a series of auctions from artists and songwriters from across the EMI family, supporting the Red Cross to raise funds for the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. EMI will match all funds raised from these auctions up to a maximum of one million euros, so you can feel good about throwing down your cash. The primary downside is that this is a UK based auction, which pretty much takes if off the table for US potential buyers who lack an unlimited cash flow (raises hand). The current bid as of 4 PM EDT on April 12 is GBP 1,120.00 or approximately US $1,838. Worth it! This auction ends April 21, 2011! I hope the person who wins this bike really loves it!
