Lot 754: Fantastic circa 1963 birthday card depicting smiling daisies on the front, 5.75 x 7.75 closed, signed and inscribed inside in black ink to continue the printed poem inside, "To Susan…and if you don't believe a word, of what I've had to say, Happy Birthday, and New Year, and Easter anyway. Paul (McCartney Jnr.), N. D. O." On the left, McCartney adds a detailed sketch of a face with a bow tie reading "Show Biz," with "Grin" written across his teeth and "Keep Smiling" on the right side. In fine condition, with a couple light stains slightly affecting a word or two of McCartney's writing and light creases. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter of provenance from the recipient's mother, in full: "This birthday card was sent by Paul McCartney to my daughter Susan Winstanley on her 13th birthday, while she was sick in Broadgreen Hospital at Liverpool." A rare, early McCartney piece that certainly would have helped cheer up a young fan on her birthday.
