Fantastic vintage circa 1963 Rolling Stones fan club promo card (the earliest form of a Stones fan club card), 5.5 x 4.5, signed on the reverse in blue ballpoint, "Mick Jagger, xxx," "Brian Jones," "Keith Richard," "Charlie Boy," and "Bill Wyman." Caption on reverse lists the address of fan club national secretary Diane Nelson. In fine condition. A hugely desirable cast of very early, very bold Stones signatures. Accompanied by an original concert program from the Rolling Stones' first tour (as a supporting act for The Everly Brothers/Bo Diddley/Little Richard), a photo of the original concert handbill, and a letter of provenance from the original recipient, which reads, in part: "I can verify these autographs are original as I collected them myself whilst I was a member of the Blue Stars pop group playing the Ma Regan circuit around the Birmingham area…We were a support band for all the visiting artists, along with other local groups. We used to sit around in the dressing room before going on stage, chatting as one does, this gave us ample time to obtain autographs. I had the privilege of meeting the Rolling Stones along with The Beatles, The Searchers, The Hollies, Freddie and the Dreamers, and lots lots more." Also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks noting that the signatures were "obtained at the Plaza Ballroom, Old Hill, Birmingham on August 10th 1963."
