I picked up this piece of memorabilia at a fair a year or so ago and just now noticed something.  Today (June 1st) is the 45th anniversary of the UK release of Sgt Pepper (according to BEatles Bible and Wiki, which I am sure are both right)  However on this memorabilia piece it says the release date is march 26th 1967.   Does anyone  know why there would be this type of misprint, or is it simply who ever made the memorabilia messed it up?

I suspect whoever created the frame got it wrong. That's a still from the Hello, Goodbye promo, incidentally, which was filmed on 10 November 1967, way after Pepper was released.

Nice to see you again, RedLennon.

Actually, the song listing with the release date of May 26 probably IS the memorabilia piece that's being sold.

The pictures are just there to make the piece more visually attractive (unless they're signed). They're just reproductions of classic pictures.

It's common practice to frame a visually boring piece of memorabilia (letter, contract,...) with something attractive from that era. So even though the Hello Goodbye promo picture came after Sgt Pepper, it's still from that year - and the Beatles are after all wearing their Sgt Pepper outfits.

If the official release date was May 26th but got moved back a few days, perhaps there is indeed some value to that piece!

Depends on how many were released before they changed the release date.
