Description

The Beatles rock Shea Stadium for the last time

Sought-after pair of items: a full ticket for the Beatles' concert at New York's Shea Stadium on August 23, 1966, 6.25 x 1.4, issued for "Upper Reserved," "Sec. 6," "Row R," and "Seat 10," with front featuring an image of the Beatles in matching suits; and an original color 6.25 x 8.75 flyer for the Beatles concert at Shea Stadium in 1965, which depicts the band huddled together against a yellow background below bold text: "Sid Bernstein presents the Beatles, In Person." Both items are affixed to a blue 13.5 x 9.5 cardstock mount with a signed certificate of authenticity from Bernstein, who notes: "Your individually numbered ticket is from the only remaining lot of tickets that were not sold prior to the concert. These tickets were recently discovered in a vault among valuable entertainment memorabilia that I have collected during my 34 years in the music and entertainment industry." In overall fine condition.
