    The Beatles Cow Palace Black and White Negatives (88) In Oakland Tribune Envelope (1965). A collection of 88 camera negatives from the Beatles' appearance at the Cow Palace in San Francisco on August 31, 1965. The group did two shows that day: a matinee and an evening show. This was the last date of the North American tour in 1965. During the evening show, fans rushed the stage and the show had to be temporarily stopped. This was the second time the Beatles played the Cow Palace, as they had played there in August 1964. The envelope measures 3.5" x 10.2" and is in Good condition with soiling and fading from handling and use. The envelope has the Oakland Tribune logo on it with the handwriting in black ink, stating "Beetles [sic] at the / Cow Palace / aug. 31, 1965" on the "Assignment" portion. The "Photographer" portion has the photographer's name scribbled out in black marker. The 88 negatives - on 16 separate strips - have shots from the crowd of the audience and the performances. It cannot be determined which performances (the matinee or evening show) they were from. The negatives are in Very Good Plus condition with thumbprints on the sides from handling. COA from Heritage Auctions.
