Ltd. copyright stamp (signed on May 26, 2013, at approximately 11:55 PM at Signature FBO Flight Support private airfield at Memphis International Airport); and the Starr portrait, with trimmed bottom edge, measures 7.75 x 10 and is signed nicely in red ballpoint, “Ringo Starr.” The Harrison portrait is light paperstock, whereas the other photos are of a heavier cardstock. In overall fine condition, with a small crease to Lennon, light creasing and a small tape stain to Harrison, and light rippling and aforesaid trimmed bottom border to Starr. The John, Paul, and Ringo photos are accompanied by letters of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, and the George photo is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. The White Album—long recognized as one of the best albums of all time—celebrates its 50th anniversary in November 2018, making this remarkable complete set of signed lithographs an especially timely offering.
