STOCKHOLM - A fan of the Swedish pop group ABBA saw the money, money, money roll in as his collection of more than 25,000 ABBA albums, posters and other memorabilia was sold at an auction house in Stockholm.

Stockholms Auktionsverk on Monday said private collector Thomas Nordin’s stash of ABBA items sold for 560,000 Swedish kronor ($86,000) over the weekend.

A rare vinyl from 1981 fetched 51,500 kronor ($7,905), and a purple ABBA baseball jacket was sold for 38,000 kronor ($5,833).

Bidders from around the world also went for ABBA Barbie dolls, bags, soaps, clogs, posters and an extensive collection of newspaper clippings.

Nordin built up his ABBA memorabilia collection over nearly 40 years.

The group is famous for songs such as “Money, Money, Money” and “Dancing Queen.”
