This is certainly one of the more usual lots we've ever seen in our auctions.
This card was made using a copper letter press which the seller had access to via work. She made it to request that Paul and The Beatles sing A Taste of Honey for her boyfriend. It was certainly eye catching as Paul not only read the request on stage at the Cavern Club but also performed the song for them.
Afterwards Cavern DJ Bob Wooler suggested she try and get the card autographed and she managed to get Paul and John to sign it on the reverse for her.
This a unique item and part of the rich tapestry of Beatles History from the Merseyside area, and that's not including the fact that it is signed by two of the Fab Four!
The signatures are in pen, and are both dedicated to Rita.
