Lot 7010: Sought-after vintage Beatles signatures on an off-white 5.25 x 6.75 lightly-lined slip clipped from a larger sheet and affixed to a slightly larger piece of cardstock, boldly signed in black felt tip by Paul McCartney, and in black ballpoint by George Harrison, John Lennon, and Ringo Starr, who adds a star below his name. Central horizontal fold and show-through from adhesive to reverse (not affecting the bold signatures), otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a 2013 letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, who states that "autograph sets from 1967 are extremely desirable, and also quite scarce, as The Beatles were rarely ever out in public together after they ceased touring in August of 1966." Caiazzo notes that the signatures were obtained on September 21, 1967, at the West Malling airfield in Kent, England when The Beatles were filming outdoor sequences for their Magical Mystery Tour film. A scarce combination of Beatles signatures from their distant post touring years.
