Lot Details

Lot 60
THE BEATLES Set of Beatles signatures on the verso of a Parlophone promotional postcard, accompanied by an authentication letter by Frank Caiazzo.
Circa March 1963 promotional postcard picturing The Beatles on the recto with Parlophone imprint at right, the verso inscribed "Love to Wendy/from the/Beatles" (in John's hand) above the signatures in varying blue inks of John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, all but Paul adding "xx" or "xxx" following their names. 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches (9 x 14.5 cm); matted and framed with two photographic group portraits from the same sitting as the postcard. Each corner with some slight discolor from former mounting, the upper left corner with a small loss obscured by mat and a very short closed tear across the "L" in "Love," faint old dampstain to upper right corner not affecting text, accompanied by a letter of authenticity dated 20 July 2001 by Frank Caiazzo of The Beatles Autographs.
A fine, dark set of Beatles autographs asserted by Caiazzo to have been signed in March or April 1963. This card with the uncommon salutation in John's hand. Authentic sets of Beatles autographs with the Caiazzo authentication are increasingly difficult to obtain at auction.
