Wow! I would love to have that. Where's it from? AFAIK they only ever did three signing sessions, and just one for the release of Love Me Do, in Widnes (can I get a Widnes?).

Wanna swap for the rare withdrawn LMD 2012 reissue? Thought not. paul-mccartney

Joe, thanks for pointing out the provenance of the piece. It's definitely one of my favorites (but wait until the 50th anniversary of I Want To Hold Your Hand and Meet the Beatles...)

Zig, thanks for remembering the lecture. It was a great audience of students aged 18-21 years old and they were very enthusiastic [of course there was free pizza, soda, and Beatle music, so maybe this had nothing to do with me]. I stayed to chat long after the lecture was over. Yes .......... it is visible on YouTube

[it took a while for my son to realize he needed to raise the camera a bit].

Every now and then I'll post some memorabilia that I've pulled out of a closet and dusted off.

This piece is quite different: it's future memorabilia.

You see, it's dated 2012 and was just given to me today by someone at work.

What I find remarkable is that a 40-50 year old band would still be considered marketable to little kids.

(Now let's see, when I was 5 years old would I have been interested in any musical act going back 45 years?)

Note to memorabilia collectors: the ideal time to get memorabilia is BEFORE it's considered memorabilia.

If I were 20 years old, I'd buy Harry Potter stuff and sit on it a few decades. And I'd keep it un-opened!

I have a Jimi Hendrix album that I bought as a kid and never took out of the cellophane wrapper. I didn't buy it with memorabilia in mind. I thought that one day when I was "old" I'd open it with some "old" high school friends and we'd listen to it over a beer as if it were a brand new album. Still might.

Should have done that with a few Beatle albums...

This has been billed as the last cheque co-signed by Lennon and McCartney.

But who knows...

Very cool ITSKD. You really have got a wonderful collection of memorabilia, enough to make a fan drool at the thought of owning just a sliver.

Hope youre having a nice christmas.

Right!

Of course you hardly ever know whom you're bidding against. Reminds me of a story though: years ago, I was bidding on the handwritten lyrics to Lennon's "God." At some point the person next to me gently elbowed me and said, "You're bidding against the Hard Rock Cafe."   I was never gonna win that one...

[I do enjoy going to Hard Rock Cafe's to see all the stuff I got outbid on! (and the Hard Rock Cafe is featured at the end of Into the Sky...)]
