B43948 – The Beatles And Jimmie Nicol Autographed Star Pics 1964 Hong Kong Merchandising Card (UK) – Price On Request

A black and white Beatles Star Pics merchandising card that has been autographed on the reverse by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Jimmie Nicol in blue ballpoint pen.

The autographs were obtained at the President Hotel, Hong Kong on 9th June 1964, the group were in the country to perform two shows at the Princess Theatre on the evening of the same day with stand in drummer Jimmie Nicol, Ringo did not fly out with The Beatles as he was recovering from tonsillitis.
The image of The Beatles on the front of the card was taken during their autumn tour of the UK in November/December 1963.

Accompanied by a detailed letter of provenance from the original recipient that reads:-

‘After being at school in Hong Kong I had a job with the H.K Government
I attended The Beatles press conference at the President Hotel – their entourage had a secure floor.
I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. In the evening they were supposed to meet the last 24 semi-finalists of the Miss H.K Pageant in the hotel ballroom. However only Jimmy & John turned up – Paul and George too tired after the flight. (It was said that it wasn’t on their schedule). A few of us (mad school friends) had entered the pageant, so I was present.
The following morning 2 of us, with security clearance, went to their hotel room to obtain autographs and photo. They were having a pillow fight (mostly John & Paul) and breakfast had not been cleared away. John was very chatty and gave us autographs but asked us to come back in a couple of hours for photo after they had tidied up!
We returned later and I got my photo with Paul (favourite at the time) and personal autographs. (The bedroom was busier than earlier).
There were 2 performances at the Princess Theatre 7.30 and 9.30pm – I was at both. Great, fairly noisy!
They left for Australia the next day (where Ringo joined them after being ill).
Hard to believe this was 60 years ago!

Included with the autographs are three modern photographs, one of John Lennon and Jimme Nisol at the Miss Hong Kong pageant, one of the Beatles taken during the group’s press conference at the President Hotel and one of the recipient with Paul McCartney which was taken in The Beatles hotel room.

The merchandising card measures 13.5cm x 8.75cm (5.4 Inches x 3.5 inches). The condition is very good.
