Please note - The Beatles Shop will be closed from Sunday 26th February while we have important repairs done to the premises. The work is expected to take around 10 days. During this time there will be no one available to take phone calls and we will have no access to emails. No staff will be available for valuations. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully we will be sorted, tidied and everything back in place by the 10th March, but please try ringing us first around that time just to make sure we are open. Thank you

“Mimi’s Still Got The Cats”

John’s Aunt Mimi took in student lodgers. One of these was a veterinary student who stayed at the house on Menlove Avenue in the late 50s, while John was also living there.

A few years later in 1964, this student caught up with his former house mate at a Beatles concert in Cardiff and was treated to the autograph below.

It is fully signed by all four Beatles with John adding a personal message about Aunt Mimi and her cats at the top.

The estimate on this interesting item is £5000-£5700.
