    Beatles Signed 1964 Lucky Stars Summer Spin Invitation Letter. One page, 7.75" x 10", no place, undated. A rare invitation to participate in ABC Television 'Lucky Stars Summer Spin', which took place on July 11, 1964. The invitation letter has been autographed on the reverse by The Beatles, Mike Pender, and Paul from the Big 3. John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison have signed in blue ballpoint pen. Paul McCartney signed in black ink, and Harrison signed a second time with a black felt tipped pen.

    The Beatles appearance was a rare live performance, as Lucky Stars Summer Spin shows were usually pre-taped size days before transmission. Due to an ITV technicians strike, however, The Beatles were scheduled for a live show. Following their 'A Hard Day's Night' northern premiere, the band left Liverpool airport at 1:30 am, arriving in London at 3:00 am. After just a few hours of sleep, they made their way by boat down the River Thames to ABC's Teddington Studio Centre. The band had a quick 1:45pm afternoon rehearsal, and appeared for their live transmission at 5:50-6:35pm. Very Good Minus condition, with light wear at edges and foxing throughout. Includes a typed letter of authentication from the invitation's original recipient. COAs from Heritage Auctions and Tracks Ltd.
