The Beatles piano auction has ended with a final bid of $98,888
This website initially was created to chronicle the quest for autographs from the two surviving Beatles on a piano created for East St. Tammany Habitat for Humanity.
While the blog presents the adventures (and misadventures) of this epic journey, the actual signings are covered in the posts on The Beatles Adventure page, titled "Starr Struck," (October 18) and "Sir Paul Says, 'Yes'," (November 24.)

Thank you to all who have been part of this journey!
