    The Beatles: Vintage Signed UK Prototype Poster (1963). Original 1963 English prototype poster, 17.25 x 22, featuring a terrific set of four concert images capturing each Beatle in the midst of a performance, beautifully signed by all four on their corresponding images. A magnificent set of autographs, each Beatle has beautifully signed in blue ballpoint ballpoint ink (with the exception of McCartney who signs in black), "Love to Susan, Paul McCartney, xxxx," "To Jane love from John Lennon xxx," "To Sue love you George Harrison xxx," and "To Sue love from Ringo Starr xxx." On the reverse of the poster are signatures of some of the the opening acts for this concert tour. The poster was signed during the Beatles' Autumn Tour starting November 1, 1963, which included their now famous Royal Command Performance in front of the Queen Mother on November 4th. Many Beatles aficionados will immediately recognize the importance of this item, that The Beatles seldom signed any images that featured them with their instruments, primarily due to the fact that most of their publicity photos feature them in studio and non-musical poses. Presently, there are only a handful of vintage group signed items featuring images of the band with their instruments, and this item holds the incredible distinction of being the only known signed poster showing the entire band with their instruments. Furthermore, although the piece has been professionally restored, the impression is a poster in excellent condition, with no folds or creases and virtually no evidence of wear whatsoever. Because of the inherent quality and content, and considering the rarity of this piece, it would be nearly impossible to overstate the its collectability. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
