    Beatles - Star-Club Photo Signed by John Lennon in Matted Display with a Signature of George Harrison (Circa Late-1962). A 5.75" x 4.125" seldom-seen early B&W photo of the group (with Ringo) boarding a plane; the bottom margin reads: "The Beatles spielen im [playing in] Star Club Hamburg - St. Pauli". It is signed in blue ballpoint: "To Teddy/ Love from/ John/ Lennon". Matted beneath is a 3" x 1.25" (overall) odd-shaped sheet signed also in blue ballpoint: "George Harrison". Double matted to an overall size of 10.75" x 11.5". The signed photo and signature both exhibit some roughness and creasing, overall Very Good. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The Beatles did a fourteen-night run at the Star Club November 1-14, 1962, sharing the bill with Little Richard. This was their fourth trip to Hamburg, their first with Ringo as their drummer, and their second at the Star-Club. They had opened the club on April 13 of that year. It was during this trip that they met and became friends with future Apple artist Billy Preston who was playing in Little Richard's band. The band's last two-week stint at the club was December 18-31, 1962. It was during this time that their "Love Me Do" single peaked at Number 17 on the UK charts. They would not appear in Hamburg again until June 26, 1966, this time at a somewhat larger venue.
