Description

The only band-signed Sgt. Pepper color insert known to exist

Virtually nonexistent color cut-out insert from Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club band, 12 x 12, signed in fountain pen by John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison, and signed in fountain pen along the bottom of cut-out number five, “Love, Paul McCartney.” Entire cut-out has been affixed to an identical size piece of cardboard. In fine condition, with McCartney’s signature, which was originally on the reverse of the cut-out, having been professionally, and practically seamlessly, applied to the bottom edge, after it was purchased from Christie’s in South Kensington several years ago. Originally designed by Peter Blake, the cutouts were included with the original release of the album in 1967. While less than a dozen band-signed copies of the band’s landmark album are known, this is the only complete insert signed by the entire band we have ever seen. The desire for any period-signed Sgt. Pepper items far outweighs the availability. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
