I'm not a collector of anything, but I have long wished to own something physical that Beethoven touched with his hands. Same with Howlin' Wolf, who was like Beethoven in some ways. I'm sure that all of Beethoven's sketchbooks and ear trumpets are in collections and museums. Looking a little bit for info on Wolf's memorabilia, I didn't find anything yet, but it does appear that things like posters, tickets, stage passes, etc. are in the $100s for just about any level of artist. The discussion on the Live Howlin' Wolf thread about one of his business cards made me wonder if it would be possible to snag one of those from his long career. Cleveland rock museum once had Wolf's leather briefcase that he used throughout his career. Somewhere, somehow I saw some photos of famous people's underwear. Nope. Not even if it's the Wolf's. Especially if it's the Wolf's.
