Queen comes to America: an exceedingly rare signed debut album

Queen debut album with gold embossed sleeve signed and inscribed on the front in ballpoint, “Love to Bill, Freddie Mercury,” “Brian May, to Bill with love,” “To Bill, love Roger Taylor,” and “John Deacon.” A few scattered creases, typical ‘ring of wear’ to front cover, and two stickers to the upper corners, otherwise fine condition. The record is included. The album was signed on May 2, 1974, following Queen's performance at Agricultural Hall in Allentown, Pennsylvania, during Queen's first US tour as support for Mott the Hoople. Fully signed albums from this era are virtually nonexistent, and there are few, if any, extant examples of the gold-embossed Queen I album signed by the band. Accompanied by an original 1973 ‘Queen Has Arrived’ promo banner and a letter of provenance from the musician who originally met the band and acquired the autographs. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
