Item 7001 - Beatles Signed ‘Please Please Me’ Album Catalog 457 (Jul 2015)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $2,500.00
Sold Price: $17,045.88 (includes buyer's premium)


Incredibly desirable 1963 Parlophone mono first pressing Please Please Me album boldly signed on the reverse in blue and black ballpoint, “Best wishes from the Beatles, John Lennon,” “Paul McCartney,” “George Harrison,” and “Ringo Starr.” In very good condition, with heavy creases to edges, scattered stains and soiling, a few edge tears, and a removed unidentified ink signature to the lower left; the Beatles’s signatures are essentially unaffected by any of the cover’s flaws. The record is not included. Seeking to capitalize on the success of their ‘Please Please Me’ and ‘Love Me Do’ singles, the Beatles recorded the majority of this album in a single day and Parlophone rush-released it on March 22, 1963. Before long the Beatles topped the UK charts and took off as an international sensation. A spectacular, uninscribed and fully signed example of their first album. Pre-certified REAL.
