Original Harry Potter Art Work Sells For Record Breaking $1.9 Million

Jun 27 2024 Share

The first ever watercolor book cover of the first installment of the Harry Potter series, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”, has been sold at an auction for a surprising record breaking $1.9 million.

Sotheby’s a fine artwork company confirmed in a statement that the item became ‘the most valuable Harry Potter item ever sold at auction,’ and that the acquisition of the artwork was between four bidders.

The work created by Thomas Taylor in 1997, when he was only 23-years old, was expected to be sold in the region of $400,000 – $600,000. Those expectations were however shattered with the piece ultimately being sold for a staggering $1.9 million.

This is not the first time that Taylor’s artwork was sold at an auction as in 2001, when only 4 books of the series were published, the work was sold for $108,500 a far cry from the insane $1.9 million it garnered in 2024.

Crazy Fan Tries To Jump On Cristiano Ronaldo

Jun 27 2024 Share

Following Portugal’s shock 2-0 loss to football minnows Georgia, a crazy fan tried to jump on Portuguese global phenomenon Cristiano Ronaldo as the striker was entering the dressing room.

The fan’s plan unfortunately for him backfired, with his jump not being accurate enough and instead of getting the opportunity to meet his hero it seems that he was quickly taken by the countless security guards accompanying Ronaldo.

The Portuguese star’s comeback to European football has not been what he would have wanted as he is still yet to open his scoring account at Euro 2024 and will be hoping for a better performance from himself and his team in the Round of 16 against Slovenia.

It is clear that people will well and truly do anything to meet and get a picture with Cristiano Ronaldo.
