Beatles Signed Early Promo Card

Started this discussion. Last reply by KarlKeaton Nov 16. 1 Reply

Here is an interesting promo card with a Frank Caiazzo COA. The picture from the seller looks like a copy? It lacks the contrast in Frank's photo and it's missing the card texture. Do you think this…Continue

Just came across this set of autographs. The signatures appear to be fading in color. Can't say I like this set. George's signature looks a bit choppy and not sure about the other 3.

This one is currently for sale at Lawrence auctions in the UK. Not sure but it looks to be in a hand other than the Beatles. Possibly Neil Aspinall?

A bit different. Signatures on the inside cover of the gatefold VJ Lp Songs, Pictures and Stories..... Lp. Looks like cello tape has been placed on top of all the signatures. Does this look like Neil…Continue

"It just seems as if the signatures are almost drawn. To get a jacket signed at a gig you would expect a bit more of a hurried signature. These appear to be purposefully slow / careful indicating a more controlled environment."

"Ha ha what does $40k buy you these days!!! Signatures look like they were signed at a sit down meet and greet. Not at all rushed. If I was even considering a $40k spend I'd want a complete history on the Lp including time and place."

"In all honesty I think that it’s probably fine. Different scanner settings can highlight different qualities in the original item."

"I've had a couple from this series although none of the erotic pieces. I think the non erotic images do a bit better and can make in the $3 to $5k range."

"Heres an interesting comparison. Consignment sale at $10000 nets you $7700 assuming a 23% commission rate. Or you sell it privately for $8000 and everybody wins except the consignor and the buyer pays $2000 less. Mind you if you can sell it for $10k…"

"Julie, I'm sure someone on this forum would love to purchase your signed menu. Might be the best way to go as you won't lose any money to commissions etc. The suggested valuations seem to be in the $6000 to $8000 range so perhaps a $7000…"

"I think this is pretty much the formula. So on balance at the top end 23% is pretty good compared to 13% selling by yourself. His reputation is worth the extra 10%. Not sure if he uses reserves anymore which may or may not be a factor here?"
