One of the Finest & Earliest Signed Beatles Parlaphone Cards We've Ever Seen of Handled!

Presented here for your bidding pleasure is an exquisite set of 1962 Beatles autographs signed on a rare First Issue Beatles Parlophone promotional photocard!

In October of 1962, when The Beatles released their first single "Love Me Do", their new record company, Parlophone Records produced a small quantity of promotional photocards in two formats - a horizontal and a vertical, both with pictures being shot by legendary photographer Dezo Hoffman while The Beatles were in the studio. Almost all Parlaphone cards were signed on the reverse, because there was very little light area on the front of the cards for their signatures.

The Beatles signed this “vertical” format photocard on the reverse side in blue ink pen and blue fountain pen. The photocard measures approx. 3.5”wide by 5.75” tall. Aside from minor handling wear along the edges the card stands in excellent condition. The signatures are nothing short of impeccable! George Harrison, John Lennon and Paul McCartney have each signed in various shades of blue fountain pen while Ringo Starr has signed in a crisp blue fountain pen. The autographs would have been signed late 1962 to very early 1963 (Jan/Feb).

Love Me Do reached Number 17 on the UK Single Charts and was quite an accomplishment for the band at that time. Little did they know then that their next single, Please Please Me, would hit Number 1 on February 22, 1963 as would all subsequent single records, and the rest as they say, is history. Accompanied by full Letters of Authenticity from Beckett Authentication Services (BAS) and music autograph authority Roger Epperson/REAL Authentication.
