About this item
A large format over-sized Parlophone Records promotional card that has been autographed on the front by The Beatles in ballpoint pen. John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr have signed in blue ballpoint pen. Paul McCartney has signed in black ballpoint pen. Paul has added the dedication ‘To Roger best wishes from the Beatles’ on the bottom right hand side of the card. The autographs were obtained between 8th and 13th July 1963 at the Winter Gardens in Margate, Kent when The Beatles were playing a series of concerts at the venue. The autographs come with a letter from the original recipient that reads ‘The Beatles were touring and playing at the Margate Winter Gardens. I was friendly with the daughter of the manager of the Gardens at the time, but unfortunately during a time lapse of 50 years her name has completely escaped me. However, realizing even then in their early days that this band was innovative, new and very exiting I plucked up some courage and asked her if she would get a photo for me. This she kindly did including getting all four of them to sign. I assume the signatures were not done during a concert but probably in or during a rehearsal’. The card measures 19cm x 12.5cm (7.5 inches x 4.9 inches). It has been folded down the centre, has a scuff and the top and bottom which has been caused by tape and it has two small tears on the left side. The condition is good.
