I got a poster from my dad back in 98 i think. He bought it for $10 from this old hippie that lived up the street. I am a fan of the Beatles (who isn't) so i was really excited about it. Here is the issue, I know nothing about this poster. I have looked for another one like it and never seen one. I don't know the posters name or what it was promoting (if anything) because there are no numbers, or words anywhere on it, front or back!

About 2 years ago, I came across a store in a mall in Kansas City that sold all sorts of memorabilia. Low and behold, there was my poster.... the exact same one! I asked for the owner, i needed to know anything about it. She called me a few days later and said that it wasn't for sale, but she would tell me about it.  She said that she bought it at an auction for $3,800 and that it was pretty rare. She said that it was to promote Abbey Road , but it doesn't look like any other Abbey Road pics that I've ever seen. That makes me question this woman's knowledge.

I wonder, does anyone here know anything about it?!?!  Oh, and did I mention that it is big? nearly 3' by 5'!!

Welcome to the forum Clark!

 

I haven't seen that poster, and I'm afraid I can't help you about getting info. Maybe Joe (our admin) knows or someone else...

It looks like something you would get from a magazine. That doesn't help much, does it. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

The pictures look like they're from '66, but I can't help apart from that. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

If the poster you saw was worth 38 hundred, perhaps you should sell your poster too.
