Description


Vintage circa 1966 ballpoint signatures of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison on the reverse of an off-white 6 x 8 British European Airways stationery sheet. In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing and intersecting folds.

The consignor notes: "These autographs were collected by my father and given as a gift to my mother, when they were still dating in 1966. Both of my parents were working in the VIP lounge at Heathrow airport in London, England. My father was a wine sommelier working his way through college and my mother was a waitress. The Beatles were on their way to tour America. This trip actually ended up being their last commercial tour of the USA. The autographs have been in my family ever since. I am hoping that they will find a way to a place where they can be appreciated as well as the romantic story that had them collected all those years ago." The Beatles' 1966 tour of America marked their final commercial concert tour, and included historic shows at Shea Stadium and Candlestick Park. Following this tour they dedicated themselves to recording in the studio, and their lack of public appearances made their autographs even harder to get. A simply ideal set of Beatles autographs—crisply signed and well-spaced, a superb display piece.
