Beatles, The

A rare and desirable 5.75″ x 3.5″ Parlophone Records promotional photo from March of 1963, signed in bold blue ballpoint by Paul McCartney and George Harrison, in faded ballpoint by Ringo Starr, and in fountain pen ink by John Lennon.

A vertical crease towards the right edge, passing through all four signatures, and the bottom right corner missing, resulting in the loss of the final ‘n’ of Harrison. Ringo’s signature is very faded, but still just visible and readable upon close inspection. Partially laid down to card. Despite the condition issues, still a presentable, attractive example.

Authentic signed Parlophone photographs from this period are extremely rare, as the majority were signed on the band’s behalf by secretaries. The signatures most likely date from April 1963.
