Amazing vintage Official Beatles Fan Club promo card, 5.5 x 4.25, showing the Beatles in their classic collarless suits, signed on their respective image in blue ballpoint by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, and John Lennon, with certain facial features added to each Beatle. In very good to fine condition, with light handling wear and old mounting remnants on the reverse. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA, and a copy of a provenance letter from the sister of the original recipient, in part: “When my brother worked at the Deauville in Miami Beach he met the Beatles on their first visit to Miami Beach in 1964. After meeting him, and my brother being British and our Dad being from Liverpool and being in a band, they asked him to be their ‘local helper.’ So he asked his boss at the Deauville Hotel on Miami Beach and he of course said yes. My brother did everything from getting Ringo’s favorite burger to setting up their Cabanas at the pool during their one week stay. So besides tipping him generously, they gave him photos and the fans club card and signed them in front of him.” The consignor notes that these signatures were obtained at Miami’s Deauville Hotel between February 14 and 16, 1964; the Beatles were staying there in preparation for their second appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.
