HMV boxsets. They came out around the same time as the regular CD's but HMV was owned by EMI at the time so they released these box sets with various posters,badges, 12x12 booklets, etc. To me, it was a deluxe way that the Beatles CD releases SHOULD have been offered for those inclined. I got carried away and bought a couple of each of them at the time. I still think they are really great, but after a month or so and everyone here recovers from Christmas bills, I'm going to sell some of the extra ones in the classifieds here.
