Circa 1963 Beatles Signed Album Page - McCartney, Lennon, Starr, and Harrison
Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $8,295.00
Vintage autograph album, signed in blue ink on an interior page by each member of The Beatles: Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison. McCartney has prefaced his signature by writing "Beatles, Best Wishes." Aside from the fact that the signatures of Lennon and Starr slightly overlap, all are beautifully scripted and each has been certified and graded "8" by PSA/DNA. According to an accompanying one-page LOA, dated "June 09," issued by the highly respected Beatles authorities of Tracks LTD and signed by company owner Paul Wane, these autographs have a special provenance. In part: "The autographs were obtained by Irene Brown who was a reporter for the Dundee Courier backstage at the Caird Hall, Dundee, Scotland, October 7th 1963, prior to the Beatles performance at the venue." Included with the autograph album is an original photo (6 x 4.5 inches) of Irene Dundee, pen and pad in hand, interviewing John Lennon and George Harrison backstage at Caird Hall in 1964. (The photo has been certified as a "Type 1 - 1st Generation" by PSA/DNA.) Accompanying the photo, in verification of Brown's identity, is a March/April 2003 issue of Artwork (a free newspaper distributed throughout Scotland and into the north of England) that features this very photo of Brown interviewing the Beatles. The photo was used in conjunction with an article covering an exhibition of photographs commemorating the Beatles second appearance at Caird Hall in 1964. The 48-page autograph album (4.5 x 4 inches) features a number of other autographs by unidentified individuals. Also accompanying the material is an LOA from Roger Epperson. Full LOAs from Paul Wade of Tracks LTD, Roger Epperson of REAL (Roger Epperson Authentication Ltd.), and PSA/DNA (both for the autographs and the photo), and LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $8,295.00
