    Description

    The Beatles: Excellent Signature Set - 1964. Impressive complete grouping of black ballpoint pen signatures, "John Lennon," "Congratulations La! Paul McCartney," "George Harrison," and "Ringo Starr," accomplished on a 7 x 4.25 contest page. Capitalizing on the Beatle craze of 1964, a London radio station held a contest where one of their listeners would have the opportunity to spend a day with the Beatles. The winner of the contest, A.F. Prescott, had the Beatles sign the consent form which the radio station used to determine his winning (Hence the "Congratulations! La (meaning lad in English)" salutation by McCartney). One of the bisecting fold lines slightly intersects McCartney's signature, otherwise this piece stands in exceptionally fine condition. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
