A rare fully-signed Beatles 65 album is among the top lots of a May 16-17 sale at Julien's Auctions.
It will carry an estimate of $200,000-300,000 to the annual Music Icons sale at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York.
The album was autographed on the front cover by the band in 1964-1965, making it exceptionally rare as the Beatles usually signed albums on the back.
Autographed albums from the band post-1964 are also extremely rare, as the band had become international superstars and were no longer accessible to fans.
This is one of only two known signed copies of Beatles 65 in existence, making it one of the most sought-after examples.
The record for a signed Beatles album stands at $290,500, set by a copy of Sgt Pepper in 2013.
We have this signed copy of A Hard Day's Night available, one of only 8-10 in existence.
An autographed copy of Please Please Me is valued at $40,000-50,000.
Signed copies of the Beatles' first album are significantly more widespread, with around 70 known examples.
The sale will also include a 1962 Rickenbacker 425 played by George Harrison during the recording of I Want to Hold Your Hand and toured extensively throughout the 1960s. It is estimated to make $400,000-600,000.
We have a wide range of Beatles memorabilia available to purchase.
