    A Collection of Six Rare Items From The Star-Club Including Beatles Pennant and Autographed Little Richard Artist Card (Germany, 1962) 1962 was the year the Star-Club opened it's doors, and it was an amazing year. The Beatles would play there for three extended engagements in 1962 - seven weeks in the Spring, with Pete, and a pair of two-week engagements in November and December respectively, with Ringo. In the Spring, they would undertake a second recording session with Tony Sheridan in Hamburg, and during the November dates they would share the bill with Little Richard. Here is a fantastic group of items dating to the Star-Club's initial year, 1962, starting with a very rare 15" Beatles pennant, produced for the December dates. In Good condition, made of heavy stock paper, with moisture warping and creasing throughout, a small tear on the bottom edge, and small tack holes at the two end corners. Also a rare autographed Little Richard artist card from November, Very Good, boldly signed in blue ballpoint "God Bless You / Little Richard". With an ornate foldover ticket stub to Bill Haley's September 29th performance, another Star-Club stub from 1962, an unsigned Tony Sheridan Star-Club artist card - noting his personal management by Horst Fascher - and finally, a postcard written and signed by Fascher, dated March 13th, these last four items all Very Good or better. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.
