Passport to Motown

People Magazine reports the latest episode of PBS’s Antiques Roadshow had an interesting find when a collector of Motown records showed up with a handful of albums and 45s. Showing off an LP he bought for $0.50, the 1964 passport of a young Marvin Gaye tumbled out of the dust jacket of one of the artist’s albums.

“Passport collecting is a really vibrant collecting world because there’s usually only a few of them throughout your life; you only replace them every so often,” Woolley added. “I wouldn’t put less than $20,000 on the passport if you were to insure it,” she said.

Apparently Marvin Gaye memorabilia is pretty tough to come across in the first place, let alone a mint condition passport.
