Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $5,948.40 (includes buyer's premium)


Two original sketches of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, both done by an admirer, on individual off-white 9 x 12 sheets of sketch paper. A pencil sketch of Lennon sporting long hair and his trademark round glasses, signed in-person vertically in blue ballpoint, “John Lennon,” adding a quick self-caricature under his signature; the other a pencil and ink sketch of a bearded McCartney, signed in-person in black ballpoint. Both sketches are also signed by the artist, who has added the name of each subject as well and each signature was obtained in-person in NYC. Lennon’s signature was obtained at the “Carlyle Hotel, Sgt. Pepper Premiere Night, 11-17-74” and so noted on the reverse. Interestingly, the in-person autograph collector noted that Lennon said “you sketched me, I’ll sketch for you.” The McCartney was obtained “11-23-74, Stanhope Hotel” in NYC. In fine condition, with some scattered light toning and soiling. Accompanied by a color candid of McCartney taken at the time of signing, and a color candid of Lennon taken on April 8, 1975. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
