One of the greatest metal bands to come out of the UK, Iron Maiden have carved out a legacy unlike any other. From their early days of playing pubs in Northeast London in the late 70s, to the grandiose heights of arena’s and festivals around the world, Iron Maiden’s die hard fans and collectors have always stuck by this beloved band.
We recently picked up a great collection of Iron Maiden items, featuring some of the best collectables from their illustrious back catalogue. Below are a handful of highlights, but head to our Iron Maiden collectors store at eil.com for our full selection.
