Rare Early Mersey Beat magazines and business card

Mersey Beat magazine first appeared in July 1961. The first issue famously featured a piece written by John Lennon entitled "Being A Short Diversion On The Dubious Origins Of The Beatles" which included the line about a man on a flaming pie, from which Paul McCartney got the title of his 1997 album.

As with a lot of paper memorabilia, Mersey Beats were often discarded after they had been read. Not many people hung on to local papers, music based or otherwise, at the time. Therefore these throwaway items often become highly collectible.

Up for sale in our 2014 Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction are the first three issues of Mersey Beat magazine, including issue 2 which was the first time The Beatles adorned the cover.


Click on images for larger versions.

Each issue is expected to reach £800-£1000.

Also in the auction is this Mersey Beat business card.
This carries an estimate of £250-£300

Rare Fan Club Advertising Poster

I don't really know what to write about this item. I don't think we've ever sold anything like this before.

Back in the days before the official Beatles Fan Club was formed three girls from St Helens started one up and they would take this notice with them to any gigs to advertise it. This included trips to the Cavern Club and other local concerts.

Details of how the fan club came in to being (including Bob Wooler's part in the tale) and comments from the girls can be found in Mark Lewisohn's book Tune In on pages 489 -491.



It's never easy to place a value on something that is so obviously a one-off item, but the current estimate on this notice is £250-£300. It will be sold in our Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia auction in August and will be a great addition to someone's collection.
