A Trio of Cavern Items

Here's a trio of Cavern items from 1963/64. They date from after the Beatles had last played there but their fame rubbed off on to the venue.

First of all there's a 1964 Cavern Club membership card. These are the ones we see most often due to more people going to the venue after the Beatles hit the big time.

The estimate on this item is £60-70

An image of the Beatles in the Cavern Club was used on this promotional card for the venue.
The card dates from around 1963/4 and carries an estimate of £40-£50 (note - picture show both sides of the card.)

Finally this large format handbill dates from early 1964 advertising concerts at the club for February. The artists listed include The Escorts, The Remo Four and Herman's Hermits.
This item has an estimate of £60-£70.

The auction takes place on August 27th 2011 at The Paul McCartney Auditorium at LIPA.
It is organised by The Beatles Shop on Mathew Street, where lots are still being taken in up until June.
