Rare Autographed Beatles Single Brings in More Than $14,000 at Auction

  • Print

A rare autographed copy of The Beatles' "Please Please Me" single sold for 9,000 pounds (about $14,770) at a Fab Four-themed memorabilia auction held Saturday in Liverpool, England.  The 1963 record, which was on the Parlophone label, was signed on both sides by George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, BBC News reports.

The recording was put on the block by a local woman who had gotten the four rock legends to autograph the disc after seeing them at one of the group's early performances at Liverpool's famed Cavern Club.  Other items that sold during the auction included a hat once belonging to Lennon, which fetched 3,200 pounds (approximately $5,250).  The sale was held in conjunction with an annual Beatles Convention, and was organized by the Liverpool Beatles Shop.

Meanwhile, Monday marked the 45th anniversary of The Beatles' last-ever scheduled concert.  According to BeatlesBible.com, the band performed an 11-song set at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. Knowing that they had intended to stop touring for good, news that they hadn't yet announced to the world, The Beatles brought a camera on stage with them to photograph the historic event. 

Here is the set list from the show:

1. "Rock and Roll Music"
2. "She's a Woman"
3. "If I Needed Someone"
4. "Day Tripper"
5. "Baby's in Black"
6. "I Feel Fine"
7. "Yesterday"
8. "I Wanna Be Your Man"
9. "Nowhere Man"
10. "Paperback Writer"
11. "Long Tall Sally"
