(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $10,000.00 +
Sold Price: $27,500.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Remarkable vintage 8.5 x 7.5 paperstock photo of the Beatles excised from an early sheet music book, signed at at the Savoy Ballroom in April 1963 in blue ballpoint, "John Lennon," "All the best, Paul McCartney," "Best wishes from George Harrison," and "Ringo Starr, xxx." This rare image was captured by photographer Peter Kaye in a promo shoot shortly after Ringo joined the band in 1962, and was subsequently published in a 1963 songbook; affixed to the reverse is a partial page of sheet music for 'Please Please Me,' their early hit single recorded in January 1963. In very good to fine condition, with trimmed edges and faint rippling. Encapsulated by Beckett Authentication Services and accompanied by full letters of authenticity from REAL and noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, in part: "This photo was signed by The Beatles on April 7, 1963, when they were performing at the Savoy Ballroom, Portsmouth, Hampshire, England. This is an extremely rare signed early image, and very few have surfaced to date." Also accompanied by an original newspaper clipping advertising the Beatles (as the "Star Attraction!!") and supporting act Mike Devon & the Diplomats at the Savoy Ballroom on April 7, 1963, as well as an original vintage glossy 9.75 x 7.75 photo of Mike Devon & the Diplomats on stage. As a well-documented early, rarely seen promo portrait boasting large and bold in-person signatures by the Beatles, this is a truly fabulous piece.
