COMPANY PROFILE


MY NAME IS THOMAS VANGHELE, PROPRIETOR OF FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES.

MY COMPANY, FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES, HAS BEEN ONLINE FOR 17 YEARS, AND DURING THAT TIME, I HAVE DEVELOPED A WELL REGARDED REPUTATION FOR SPECIALIZING SOLELY IN THE HIGHEST QUALITY BEATLES RECORDS, MEMORABILIA, & AUTHENTIC AUTOGRAPHS.

I STAND BEHIND EVERYTHING I SELL AND WILL NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE IMPORTANCE OF MY REPUTATION - AN 'OLD SCHOOL MENTALITY' PERHAPS, BUT ONE I TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY. MY STANDARDS WILL ALWAYS REMAIN HIGH, AND ARE BACKED BY MY UNFAILING CUSTOMER SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. HEAR WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ON MY TESTIMONIALS & COMMENTS PAGE.

IT IS SO IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET TO KNOW AND TRUST YOUR MEMORABILIA SELLER. IF YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW ME, I HOPE YOU WILL SOON. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO VISIT ME IN THE FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES OFFICE IF YOU ARE PLANNING A TRIP INTO THE NEW YORK METRO AREA.

REMEMBER, CONDITION IS EVERYTHING! THE MOST PREVAILING TREND IN RECENT YEARS HAS BEEN THE GREATER FOCUS BY COLLECTORS ON CONDITION. NOW MORE THAN EVER, THE CONDITION FACTOR IS PARAMOUNT WHEN APPRAISING RECORDS AND MEMORABILIA - IN FACT, CONDITION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN RARITY.

COLLECT SMART. INVEST WITH FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES!

BEST REGARDS,
TOM VANGHELE

A LITTLE HISTORY...

ALONG WITH MANY OF YOU, MY VERY FIRST RECOLLECTION OF THE BEATLES IS FROM A COLD FEBRUARY NIGHT IN 1964 - SUNDAY THE 9TH TO BE PRECISE. I REMEMBER BEING AWE STRUCK AS I WATCHED WITH GLEE, THE FAB FOUR ON OUR BLACK-AND-WHITE ADMIRAL TELEVISION.

GENE SIMMONS OF THE ROCK GROUP 'KISS' STATED IT BEAUTIFULLY: "I REMEMBER WATCHING. IT WAS AS POIGNANT A MOMENT AS WHEN THE MONOLITH APPEARED IN FRONT OF THOSE APES IN THE MOVIE '2001 - A SPACE ODYSSEY'. IT CHANGED MY SENSE OF BEING."

Christmas 1964THERE I AM ON CHRISTMAS MORNING 1964, CLUTCHING MY LATEST PRIZED POSSESSION, THE NEWLY RELEASED LP "BEATLES' 65" (MONO, OF COURSE). I HAD JUST BROKEN THE SEAL ON THE LP, AND MY BROTHER ALEX WAS READY ON HIS NEW DRUM KIT. MOMENTS LATER, THE FIRST TRACK "NO REPLY" BLARED FROM OUR PHONOGRAPH. JUST EIGHT MONTHS LATER, IN THE SUMMER OF 1965, I WAS ONE OF THE FORTUNATE ONES TO SEE THE BEATLES LIVE AT THE INFAMOUS CONCERT AT SHEA STADIUM ON AUGUST 15, 1965.

AND AS THEY SAY, THE REST IS HISTORY...

AS TIME PROGRESSED, I BECAME A SERIOUS BEATLES COLLECTOR; INVESTING AND STUDYING ALL FACETS OF THE BEATLES. A LIFELONG HOBBY RESULTED IN FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES A DEDICATED AND PASSIONATE BUSINESS.
