    Beatles - An Exceptional Collection of Original Star-Club Memorabilia (Hamburg, 1960s).

    This is a terrific collection of original items from "the most famous Beat-Club in the World", the Star-Club of Hamburg. The Beatles were the first headliners when the Star-Club opened its doors at 39 Grosse Freiheit in April 1962, the first of three trips they made to Hamburg to play at the venue. The Star-Club quickly established itself as one of the most important rock venues on the European continent, and the world, playing host not just to the Beatles, but to Jimi Hendrix and many other performers. This exceptional group of Star-Club items includes many rare items, including: a Star-Club "passport" issued to members of the groups which played there, as well as an Honorary-Member card for 1964 and an original clear souvenir sticker, all in Mint condition; an incredible vintage Star-Club label pin on a Christmas card backing in Excellent condition; a large window cling, three sheets of A4 letterhead, a small "with compliments" card, an original drinks menu, a foldover document holder, and several employee forms all Very Good. Rounding out the collection are three later print photos of the club, including a terrific Peter Bruchmann exterior shot, all Excellent. Sixteen items in total, this is an instant Star-Club archive to be treasured. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
