Vintage circa 1964 color postcard published by BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) depicting London’s famous Big Ben, 5.5 x 3.5, signed and inscribed on the reverse in crisp black ballpoint, “To Lynne, Best Wishes, Jimmie Nicol,” “Paul McCartney,” “John Lennon,” and “George Harrison.” In very good condition, with staple holes to one corner and moderately heavy overall creasing (the signed side displays quite cleanly nonetheless). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, in part: “This is a rare set of Beatles signatures, with Jimmie Nicol, who was the drummer that filled in for Ringo...in June of 1964…Sets signed during this short period…are very, very rare.” Nicol replaced Ringo Starr from June 3–15, 1964, at the start of the Beatles’ World Tour, while Ringo was suffering from tonsillitis and pharyngitis. An extremely rare piece, as Nicol was with the Beatles for under two weeks, playing a total of eight shows. Pre-certified REAL.
