Item 5004 - Beatles 1964 Ed Sullivan Show Signatures Catalog 540 (Nov 2018)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $12,105.45 (includes buyer's premium)


Coveted set of large vintage ballpoint signatures, "John Lennon," "Paul McCartney," "George Harrison," and "Ringo Starr," on a light blue 7.75 x 5 aerogramme, signed at the Deauville Hotel in Miami on February 15, 1964, their rehearsal day for their second appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. The signatures were obtained by Marie Donaldson, a UK press officer for ABC Television, and sent to her nephew in New Zealand. Inside is a note from Donaldson, in part: "Here at last are the precious autographs I got from The Beatles! You will have read my letter all about the day I spent with them at the T.V. Studios. They are very nice & quite unspoilt by their success." In very good condition, with moderate overall creasing and handling wear, and a few unobtrusive corner staple holes. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter of provenance from the recipient's nephew. One week after making their famous appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, broadcast from New York, the Beatles again joined Sullivan—this time at Miami’s Deauville Hotel—for a special live show. A spectacular signature set from a historic moment in Beatles history—their second introduction to the American public.
