The Beatles and their music need no introduction. As a result of their all-encompassing impact on popular music and culture, memorabilia from the band is some of the most valuable on the market.
A Hard Day's Night, released on July 10, 1964 was the Beatles' third studio album. Accompanying the band's film of the same name, it went straight to Number One in the UK charts and stayed there for 21 weeks, spending a total of 38 weeks in the Top 20.
A Hard Day's Night saw the Beatles move away from rock n roll covers and towards their classic pop sound. It holds a special place with fans, as it is the only Beatles album where all the songs were written by both John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
According the Autograph Magazine's census, there are just 125 known UK-release album covers signed by all four members of The Beatles.
