Launched in 2008, is a premier auction house with record setting prices in music, sports, pop culture, and historical memorabilia. We have sold some of the most influential artifacts in music history, such as Elvis Presley’s Owned and Stage Played 1942 Martin D-18 Sun Sessions Guitar — also known as the guitar that started Rock and Roll — ($1,320,000 realized), John Lennon’s “Sgt. Pepper’s” Personally Owned and Used Piano From His Kenwood and Tittenhurst Park Homes On Which He Composed "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "A Day In The Life" ($725,000 realized), and Duane Allman's Owned and Extensively Played 1957 Goldtop Gibson “Layla” Les Paul Guitar ($1,050,000 realized).

Over the past few years, our auctions have expanded beyond music and we have had the privilege of selling some of the finest sports memorabilia to hit the market. In 2020 alone, we helped facilitate a sale of a T206 Honus Wagner VG 3 — the most important sports card in the entire card collecting hobby — for a then-record $3.25 million. We also auctioned off a pair of Michael Jordan 1985-86 Game Worn and Signed Post-Injury Modification Air Jordan 1 Sneakers ($531,250 realized). Recently, Gotta Have Rock and Roll has become an industry leader in the soccer market, bringing premiere game worn and signed jerseys from legends such as Diego Maradona and Pelé to market and scoring record setting prices. 

Our world renowned auction houses have garnered press from some of the most popular and reputable news outlets in the world. Reuters, ABC, Fox, CNN, Yahoo!, TMZ, ESPN, Bleacher Report, The New York Times, The Washington Post, GQ, Rolling Stone, and countless more have featured stories on the unique memorabilia we have sold. We are also one of the only auction houses in the world to be partnered with a television show! In 2021, we teamed up with AXS TV’s “Rock My Collection,” a television show about music collectors and memorabilia, to create a one-of-a-kind viewer experience. 

Gotta Have Rock and Roll works tirelessly to ensure authenticity for each and every item we bring to auction. We work closely with James Spence Authentication (JSA) to examine our autographs, and are proud to announce that renowned Beatles handwriting expert Frank Caiazzo is now part of the Gotta Have Rock and Roll team. Since we have been venturing into different markets, we have also developed our relationship with MEARs to guarantee the authenticity of some of the greatest example game worn and signed sports jerseys ever sold, with names including Michael Jordan, Joe Montana, Larry Bird, and more. Of course, we also accompany all of our sales with a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
