Amoeba Music has an array of collectibles available, from rare LPs lining the walls of all three stores to Amoeba Hollywood's display cases by the stairs, by the registers and at the back of the store, and Amoeba SF's brand new display cases, located by the books section.

Our collectibles range from discontinued toys and hard-to-find promo items to signed books and merchandise. At Amoeba Hollywood you'll find rarities such as an Elvis trivia game ($15); Beach Boys paraphernalia, including a Brian Wilson promo pennant ($25) and Beach Boys Mojo magazine ($20); a book of Led Zeppelin guitar tablature ($60); a Smiths Tapes limited edition box set ($280); Ravi Shankar’s autobiography Raga Mala, signed by Shankar ($200); and Beatles goods galore.

If you can’t make it into the store, there’s always our online Merchandise section, with Amoeba swag, rare posters and books, and more. See our currently featured items here. And if you need extra cash or credit for those rare items, don't forget we're always looking for your used CDs and LPs, and you'll get 30% more value if you trade in for credit.

Amoeba Hollywood can be an overwhelming place in terms of volume, with close to 700,000 CDs, DVDs, LPs and Blu-rays alone. So it may be easy to overlook some of the many other items we have on sale. For instance, did you know we sell Hello Kitty glasses? I didn’t, and I pass by these things every day.
