Beatles Autographs at Auction

An autograph auction at Colwyn Bay, North Wales was estimated to bring in £200-£300. The collection went for £3,500.

The auction included some of the most popular performers of the 1960s. The autographs were collected by John Rees during the time that he worked on Thank Your Lucky Stars. He used the autographs as payment on his account at a delicatessen near the studio.

The Beatles appeared on Thank Your Lucky Stars in January 1963. They signed the book at their second appearance on February 17, 1963.
