“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.
