Lot 7013

Vintage ballpoint signatures of George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and drummer Jimmie Nicol on an off-white 5 x 6 sheet of British European Airways stationery. Matted with a large photo of the Beatles, with Nicol, following their flight to Denmark, the matching BEA banner visible in the background, to an overall size of 23.5 x 14.5. In very good condition, with intersecting folds and scattered creasing. Consignor notes that the signatures were obtained by a BEA flight attendant on June 4, 1964. Nicol replaced Ringo Starr from June 3–15, 1964, at the start of the Beatles’ World Tour, while Ringo was suffering from tonsillitis and pharyngitis. Given the time period, this exists as one of the first known signatures Nicol made as a Beatle, and the earliest such example we have ever offered.

Estimate: $3000-5000
