Hi,

I have a card with both their autographs  written in circa 1963 and given to my sister personally.

They have never been sold before. 

Is anyone interested to buy on this site ?

 

Thanks Martin.

Hi @mezemart 

I’ve moved your post to our catch-all autographs thread.

There may be someone on this site interested but you’d probably have much more like going through an auction company. meanmistermustard’s post might help you?

Hi Guys

I will be honest and say that I’m not a beatles fan however I do respect them.

After my Mother past away i was going through the loft and found a signed beatles album but I have no idea if its real. 99% of me thinks that someone has just wrote these on but the 1% is thinking it just might be real. Looking to you guys help or push me in the right direction.

Really appreciate any help

Hi @pmack83 

I’ve moved your post to this thread, hopefully some of the information in the first post can help you. I don’t know too much about autographs but others on here might be able to tell you with some certainty if they are or aren’t.

I’m doing “detective work” on a possible George signature on a book/magazine clipping from a collector’s estate. I’m trying first to ascertain whether the signature is real pen ink or printed (i.e., simply part of the reproduced photo in the book). It looks like pen ink under a magnifying glass, but I know even printed signatures can sometimes look real — appearing different than the half-tone dots of the image below. 

I’ve attached a low-res photo of the two sides of the clipping. The photo with the signature shows George and Paul. The page behind the photo in question features a photo of the band on stage performing Midsummer Night’s Dream for the TV film “Around the Beatles” and the text describes the Beatles’ “natural talent for slapstick…” The paper feels more like book paper than magazine paper, so it appears to be an illustrated Beatles history book, but I’m not entirely certain.

I’m hoping a Beatles book collector will recognize the photos and text and can tell me if this signature is part of the book and, if so, the name of the book. (If not, then I’ll explore the signature’s authenticity, but that’s a separate question for another day.)

Thanks.

Ahh, thanks. It should be there now. (I had missed the second step “Upload”.)

I took some close-up photos of the back of the paper with a strong side light. There are definite raised (but variable) impressions of the letters on the reverse, so that rules out a printed signature and supports a pen ink signature. Saves me a trip to the library to scour Beatles history books.

Since the paper is an informal clipping, I would imagine that a hand-written signature is more plausible than a mechanical or stamped signature, so now the question is whether George created it or someone else.
