    The Beatles: Invitation to the First U.S. Press Conference. An original invitation to the first press conference ever held for the Beatles in the United States, one page, 8.5 x 11, February 5, 1964. Sent to various media contacts by Mike Hunter, Publicity Manager for the United Artists Corporation, the invitation reads, in full: "Dear Friend: You are cordially invited to attend the first American press conference with The Beatles, Britain's fabulous quartet of recording artists, who will soon be making their motion picture debut for United Artists. The conference will be held on Monday, February 10, in the Baroque Room at The Plaza Hotel, Fifth Avenue and 59th Street, at 1:00 P.M." In excellent condition. Only 2 have surfaced to date. In February 1964 the media had no idea that this invitation would be a part of history. A terrific relic pertaining to the the week that changed rock music forever! From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
