Lot 746: Rare Dutch VARA TV guide magazine featuring a fabulous color image of the Beatles on the front cover, June 6, 1964, 79 pages, 7.75 x 11, signed in blue felt tip by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Jimmie Nicol. Trivial paper loss to the upper right edge of the front cover and several tears to the bottom of the back cover, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. Nicol replaced the sick Ringo Starr from June 3–15, 1964, playing just eight shows with the band. These autographs were obtained while the Beatles were in Holland at the start of their world tour, most likely on June 5th, when they were recording a TV performance for VARA TV at the cafe-restaurant Treslong in front of an audience of just 150 fans. Vintage color photos of the Beatles are quite scarce and highly sought-after, and this is an extremely appealing uninscribed piece with the rare, short-lived line-up.
