The Beatles Autographs
For Sale: £9,950.00
The Beatles were cultural icons of the 1960s, influencing the social revolutions of the time. Their songs became the anthems of a generation. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), their eighth studio album, is regarded as one of their greatest works.
Two pages from an autograph album feature the signatures of The Beatles in black fountain pen ink. The first page, dedicated to "Helen" is signed by three of the group: "love from The Beatles, Paul McCartney xxx" in McCartney's hand; "love from George Harrison xxxx" ; "John Lennon xxx". Ringo Starr's name is hand-written at the bottom of the page, though not by his hand (possibly written by Paul McCartney).
The second page, from the same album, is 'signed' by John Lennon as "Benny Higgins (juggler)". The collector has neatly annotated the page with "John Lennon's joke". This unusual page is accompanied by a ticket stub for The Beatles concert, Princess Theatre, Torquay, Sunday 18th August 1963. The signatures were obtained on this date.
The pages are in excellent condition, with only minor tears to the pages from where they were removed from the autograph album. Sticky tape marks to the top and bottom of ticket stub.
The Torquay concert followed the group's release of their debut album, Please Please Me, in March 1963. Eight of the fourteen songs on the album were written by Lennon and McCartney.
