Signed Beatles debut album brings $26,785 at auction

A signed copy of the Beatles' smash hit debut album sold at an online auction on June 20

A signed copy of Please Please Me, the Beatles' debut album, saw impressive results in an online auction, which closed yesterday (June 20).

Beatles Please Please Me Signed AlbumRare, though not as rare as Paul Fraser Collectibles' example...

A copy of any album which has been signed by all four members of the Beatles will command huge prices at auction, but signed editions of their first release have become exceedingly rare, with only around 75 copies believed to be in existence. The signatures, which were acquired at the Adelphi Cinema in Slough, UK, date to 1963, the same year the Fab Four's debut was released. While the cover had sustained some damage, namely damp staining and creasing, the overall item remained in good condition and provided a highly desirable item for collectors at the sale. It sold for $26,785, with a minimum bid of just $1,000 set by the auction house. Paul Fraser Collectibles has a fantastic copy of A Hard Day's Night, signed by all four Beatles, which is one of just 10 known examples. Also featuring at the auction was a signed Parlophone postcard photograph of the band, againsigned by all members. Taken when theBeatles were recording Love Me Do in 1962, the photograph sold for $8,500. The value of signed photographs of the band has rocketed from 2000 to 2011, with the PFC40 Index reporting a 14.33% pa increase.
