DescriptionBeatles Original Shea Stadium Oversized Advertisement (1965). A rare original half-tone master used for printing advertisements for the the first stadium concert in Rock N' Roll history, which drew a record crowd of 56,000 adoring fans. During the gig, John, Paul, George, and Ringo were nearly overwhelmed by the hordes of screaming Beatlemaniacs, and could scarcely hear each other play. Presented by Sid Bernstein, the handbill promises the Beatles "In Person!" and featured cropped circular close-up photos of the Fab Four. Originally straight from Bernstein's office. Measures 13.5" x 11". In Good condition, with considerable creasing, scattered toning, three "Sid Bernstein Associates" stickers on the verso, some staining, and a 1" tear to the center of the left edge.
