    Description

    The Beatles/John Lennon Autographed 5" x 6" Paper in Mat with Classic Image of John. Wow! This is a nice piece indeed. Obtained by a Beatles fan when she had a chance encounter with John Lennon while walking through Central Park, New York City in mid-1975. Upon meeting John, the woman grabbed a 9" by 6" piece of notepaper, tore it in half, and gave both pieces to John Lennon to sign; one piece for her, and another to be given to her sister once she got home. Both Lennon signatures were signed in blue ballpoint pen. The John Lennon autograph being offered here is for the 5" by 6" signed piece of that notepaper. (The OTHER half, also with John Lennon signature, is being offered in Lot #89228)

    John Lennon enjoyed many walks with Yoko (and Sean) through Central Park while living at the Dakota between 1973-1980. In an interview, Lennon cited the Little River Band's 1978 hit tune "Reminiscing" (with the lyrics: "We'll go dancing in the dark, walking through the park, and reminiscing") as one his all-time favorite songs... so much so that he had the 45 single included in his jukebox player at the Dakota.

    Clean signature on paper measuring 5" by 6" (the mat exposes approx: 2" by 4" of the notepaper). Black and white image of John, measuring approx: 8" by 10", taken in New York by world renown photographer Bob Gruen. All in nice mat measuring approx: 14" by 18". Will frame up nicely and look great on display. LOA from renowned Beatles Autograph Expert Frank Caiazzo, LOA from Beatles Authority Gary M. Hein of Hein's Rare Collectibles, and COA from Heritage Auctions.
