2022 Beatles Auction - Beatles First Manager Allan Williams' Autograph

 Allan Williams was the band's first manager. He is famously quoted as telling Brian Epstein not to touch the band with a barge pole. He was a familiar sight at many a Beatles event and even makes a blink-and-you'll-miss-him uncredited appearance in Apple Studios during the recording of the Let It Be album in the recent Get Back documentary. Sadly Allan passed away at the end of 2016, and the Beatles world is poorer without him. 

This photograph of the Beatles in the Cavern Club signed by Allan is going under the hammer in our forthcoming Beatles Memorabilia Auction. The estimate on this item is £20-£30.


2022 Beatle Auction - Rare "Stu" Stuart Sutcliffe Play Poster

This poster is for a one man play called "Stu" written by Jeremy Stockwell and Hugh O'Neill. It's about the Beatles' original bass player Stuart Sutcliffe. The title role was played by Paul Almond. 
The production was performed at Beatles City on Seel Street in Liverpool. 

The poster will be going up for sale in our 2022 Liverpool Beatles Auction in August. 

Estimate £40-£50

2022 Beatles Auction - Beatles Cigar Bands and Beatles Balloon

2022 Beatles Auction - Original Beatles Postcard Promotional Poster

 This promotional display poster for "The Fabulous Beatles" was to advertise Beatles postcards.
