Vintage mid-1966 black ballpoint signatures of John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr on a white 6.25 x 3.5 card with affixed color images of the band as they appeared in the film Help! In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks, as well as a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, who notes that the signatures were obtained "when The Beatles were in Germany to perform concerts there in 3 cities: Munich, Essen, and Hamburg, with this short tour being referred to as 'The Bravo-Beatles-Blitztournee.' These shows took place between June 24 and 26, 1966." The 'Bravo-Beatles-Blitztournee' was the Beatles' only full tour of Germany, a six-show and three-day leg that culminated in their first return to Hamburg since their days at The Star-Club. Beatles autograph sets from 1966—in particular from this brief German tour, undertaken just days after the final recording session of Revolver—are incredibly scarce and desirable.
