Beatles Drinking Glasses

This complete set of Dutch drinking glasses date from around 1964.  There is one for each Beatle featuring a drawing and their name. Bizarrely the John and Paul designs have the wrong names under their pictures. John's says Paul and vice versa.

The glasses will be sold as one lot in our annual Liverpool Beatles Auction in August and they carry an estimate of £200 - £250

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.
