    The Beatles: Paul McCartney Vintage Signed Gift Set (1964). When the Beatles toured America in the early 1960's, the Fab Four were inundated with requests for autographs on such bizarre items as bed sheets, brassieres, body casts, and all sorts of oddities. This autograph of Paul McCartney definitely falls into that category. McCartney has signed in pencil on a 7.5 x 2 gold strip of cardboard with two holes at the end. This strip of gold originally fitted around two bottles of whiskey and gin that were enclosed in the accompanying gaudy golden box that is shaped in the design of a San Francisco cable car. Making sense out of this strange grouping, included with this lot is a handwritten note from the original owner of the piece, reading in part, "Paul's autograph from S.F. Hilton in 1964 when the Beatles played in Cow Palace. A friend, Dovie, was able to get Paul's autograph as she worked at the Hilton in Housekeeping. These liquor sets were placed in all 'VIP' rooms for their enjoyment." Some light handling wear to the autographed strip and light contrast, but in overall good condition. Sorry, but the alcohol is not included! From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
