Well, not really.
One of the things you hear in regards to the Beatles appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show on 2-9-64 is that not a single hubcap was stolen in NYC while the show was on.
So I’ve heard of teens stealing hubcaps and the Beatles fact since I was a kid, but it took all this time for me to ask: Why? What good is a hubcap? Why would you steal one? Is this just one of those things kids did, or was there true monetary value to the things?
