Records signed by a Worcestershire rock legend stole the show at a recent auction, selling for world-record prices.

Estate agent John Goodwin's latest sale saw specialist books, stamps, collectable cards, and records go under the hammer.

A collection of five Led Zeppelin LPs, consigned from a local vendor who had won them in a village raffle some years ago, smashed pre-sale expectations and achieved what are believed to be world record prices.

Each record bore the signatures of all four band members, including county resident and frontman, Robert Plant.

Estimated at just £100 to £200 each, but after seeing the levels of interest, auctioneers quickly began revising these figures.

There was even international interest, thanks to specialist advertising and online listings.

The first of the records to go up for sale, Led Zeppelin III, opened the bidding at £200.

A bidding war broke out between two telephone bidders, with the hammer eventually falling at £2,800.

This was only the start however, with Led Zeppelin II going on to sell for £12,000.

The huge sum prompted a change in the opening price, with Led Zeppelin I and Led Zeppelin IV starting at £8,000 and selling for £12,000 and £11,000 respectively.

The final lot of the day, The House of The Holy, went one step further, achieving a hammer price of £13,000.

All five records were won by the same telephone bidder who parted with a few pounds short of £60,000 for the collection including the auctioneer’s buyer’s premium.
