Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $5,131.53 (includes buyer's premium)


Vintage Parlophone Records promotional photocard from October of 1962, 5.5 x 3.25, featuring an image of the band working in the recording studio, signed on the reverse in green ballpoint, “Ringo Starr xxx,” and “John Lennon,” and in blue ballpoint, “Paul McCartney,” and “George Harrison.” Double-matted and framed (so both sides may be viewed) with a stereo Please Please Me album cover to an overall size of 21.5 x 27. In very good condition, with some light dampstaining showing through from opposite side, missing top corner tips (not visible on signature side), and some scattered light soiling, not detracting from the boldness of the signatures. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo stating, “The signatures on this card date from early 1963, and these represent excellent examples from the period.” Also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. Parlophone Records produced a small quantity of promotional photocards in two formats—a horizontal and a vertical, both with pictures being shot by Dezo Hoffman while the Beatles were in the studio. Almost all of these cards were signed on the reverse, because there was very little light area on the front of the cards for their signatures. Taken September 4, 1962, by famed Beatles photographer Dezo Hoffmann, it shows the group in their final incarnation at the very beginning of their storied career, and the first promo card with new drummer Ringo. Oversized. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
