    The Beatles: Vintage March 1964 Signature Set with Brian Epstein! Exceptional set of signatures accomplished on the reverse of an 4.5 x 6 invitation for Mr. and Mrs. George Coas to attend the Carl-Alan Awards on March 23, 1964 at the Empire Ballroom. Penned by the group in blue ballpoint along with their famed manager Brian Epstein, the signatures read, "Brian Epstein," "George Harrison (B.A.)," "John Lennon (B.O.)," "Paul McCartney (a pal)," and, "Ringo Starr." A momentous occasion in The Beatles' early stages of success, the group was honored with 2 Carl-Alan Awards on the evening when the signatures were obtained. Although originally signed by a variety of guests in attendance that night along with the Beatles, the additional signatures have been professionally removed from the piece, however there are virtually no signs of alteration. Vintage signature groupings of this quality are scarce, and signed items with the Beatles and Brian Epstein are virtually nonexistent and incredibly desirable. A superlative piece of memorabilia from every aspect, this item will easily stand as a centerpiece in any memorabilia collection. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
