Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks, and by a letter of provenance from the original recipient: “In 1963 I was a teenager, 15 years old. The Beatles were very popular and I was caught up in the ‘Magic of the Beatles.’ They came to the Regal Cinema in Wakefield and that was where the record sleeve was signed. I did not realize for some time that Paul had not signed it, but John had signed it twice.”
