Rolling Stones Signed Display Including Brian Jones and Bill Wyman 1964 Handwritten Letter and Christmas Card
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,659.00
This collection of autographed Rolling Stones material, dating from circa 1964, is comprised of three small autograph album sheets signed, respectively, by Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, and Bill Wyman and Keith Richards, plus a handwritten letter and Christmas card from Stones base guitarist Bill Wyman. 1) Three autograph album pages (2.75 x 5 inches), each signed in blue ink. The first sheet is inscribed "To Barbara Ann/Mick Jagger." Written above Jagger's inscription, in an unknown hand, are "The Rolling Stones" and "Love B." The second sheet is signed by Brian Jones, who has added "Stones" below his name. The third sheet is signed by both Bill Wyman and Keith Richards. All of the signatures are boldly penned, grading "10." It should be noted that Jones, who was the original leader of the group, left the band in 1969 and died shortly afterwards, resulting in the considerable rarity of his signature today. Each sheet is affixed to a white paper mount by means of clear tape along the top border and has a few light creases. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Matted together with a recent print of the Rolling Stones (picturing Jagger, Jones, Wyman, Richards, and Watts) to total dimensions of 12 x 16 inches. 2) One-page handwritten letter, dated November 13, 1964, signed by Bill Wyman. In his letter, written to Caroll Fraser of London, Wyman mentions his young son Stephen and discusses his current American tour. In part: "Stephen is 3 on March 29th next, in answer to your question, + everyone is fine. Our tour here in America is going very well for us this time, with very good receptions + our records are selling like mad all of a sudden. By the way, I hope you liked and bought our new single 'Little Red Rooster' which came out today in England. Also look for us on T.V. in the next week or two on our return home." It is signed "Billy Wyman," with "Stones" written below his name. Both the signature and text are flawlessly scripted and grade "10." The letter (8 x 10 inches) displays one horizontal and two vertical folds, as well as a small area of discoloration near the center. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope (6 x 3.5 inches; Gd-Vg). 3) Christmas card signed in blue ink by Bill Wyman. The card, written to Caroll Fraser, is inscribed "to Caroll - thanks for nice/birthday card + wishes/Bill Wyman." Below his name Wyman has written "Stones." Both the inscription and signature grade "10." The card (3.25 x 5 inches) remains in Excellent condition and is accompanied by the original mailing envelope (6 x 3.5 inches; Gd-Vg). Total: 3 items (autograph-sheet display, letter, and Christmas card). LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,659.00
