Description


Exceptional Swedish Parlophone Records 45 rpm yellow picture sleeve for the single ‘She Loves You / I’ll Get You,’ 7 x 7, beautifully signed in dark blue ballpoint, “John Lennon, xxx,” “Paul McCartney, xxx,” “George Harrison,” and “Ringo Starr.” Impressively matted and framed with a photo of the group and an image of the sleeve’s back to an overall size of 16.75 x 33; the frame’s backing has a window for viewing the reverse. In fine condition, with light edgewear. Accompanied by a 2007 letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, in part: “This sleeve was signed in late October, 1963, while the group was in Sweden for their very first ‘foreign’ tour. The back side of the sleeve has the ‘Top Ten’ list, displaying ‘She Loves You’ at the number one position. Of the Swedish ‘She Loves You’ sleeves that were signed by The Beatles (roughly 10 have surfaced), almost all were dark red. This is the only yellow sleeve to materialize so far signed by The Beatles, and the contrast is infinitely better than that on any of the red sleeves. These signatures are crisp and clear, and all ink is completely visible. Record sleeves of any type, LP, EP, or 45 rpm, signed on the front, are extremely rare as almost all were signed on the back cover.” The 'She Loves You' single became the first Beatles record to sell well in continental Europe, leading to their five-date mini tour in Sweden from October 25-29, 1963. A superlative example fully signed by the legendary band.
