Merry Christmas Freda!

We have a few lots in the auction this year from the collection of Freda Kelly, the secretary of the Beatles Fan Club in the 60s.

This Christmas card given to Freda in 1965 looks, at first, to be signed by all four of the Beatles. However it is in fact a set of Beatles autographs that were done by the road manager (and later head of Apple) Neil Aspinall.

It was common practice even from the early days to have someone else sign autographs to be given out. Neil seems to have been particularly expert at it!

Estimate - £100-£150.

NB: As stated these are not genuine Beatles autographs and are not being sold as such.
