 Item A001:  A Rare Unpublished BEATLES Photograph plus a Rare APPLE RECORDS PROMOTIONAL COMB !!!   Offered is a pair of rare Beatles items:    In 1964 and 1965 The Beatles were on tour and filming A Hard Days Night and HELP!  The photographers that accompanied the band captured these essential moments of history, and some of the photographs were produced as trading cards, or bubble gum cards.  However, a number of their shots were never used and have remained unpublished.  This photograph is one of 20 unpublished images that has been reproduced in a limited edition of 100.  This photograph is number 2 of 100.  Gary Sohmers from Wex Rex Records signed the COA on the backside of this frame back in 1995 certifying the authenticity of this unpublished Beatles color photograph.   The photograph measures approximately 7.5" by 9.5". 

The second piece framed with the above photograph is a rare Apple Records Promotional Comb.  This comb came from the offices of Apple Records, owned by The Beatles, and was given out in 1970 as a promotional item.  When the offices were closed, the employees were given the entire contents to do with as they pleased.  This comb came from ex-Apple employee Chris O'Dell.  Gary Sohmers from Wex Rex Records signed the COA in 1995 certifying the Apple Comb as being authentic!   The comb measures 6" long and the vinyl comb case is approx 6.25" long.  The case for the comb has gold printing which states "APPLE RECORDS" with the Apple Logo printed in gold, then has the address of Apple Records "3 Savile Row, London, W1".

Both items have been professionally matted and framed in a very nice black frame which measures approximately 15" by 20".   Shipping weight is 6.0 lbs in a box that measures  18" by 23" by 2".    SPECIAL PRICE... $495.

 Item A008:  An Ultra Rare SIGN Taken off the Apple Records Building in London England in late 1976 !!!   Offered is a one-of-a-kind ultra rarity... In late 1976, this sign was removed from the Beatles Apple Records headquarters building in London England.  It is extremely similar to the sign shown on the back cover of Ringo'sRotogravure LP.  On the Rotogravure back cover,  is pictured a doorway entrance to Apple Records Building in London, circa the summer of 1976.  The LP was released in September 1976.  The sign and entrance was totally covered with graffiti!!!  All we know is that this particular fan removed the sign from an entrance to the Apple Records building in late 1976 using a dime to unscrew it.  When compared to the sign from Rotogravure(see pic below), the wording and size are the same,  but the fonts are just slightly different, thus it is a different sign.  Whether or not this sign was used on another entranceway to the building, or used to replace the original sign(assuming it was stolen too) remains a mystery today.   The fan is no longer with us, so we only have the story to go by.  After the sign was taken in 1976, it was brought back to the US and put on display outside at the fan's art studio for over 20 years.   During that time, all the graffiti that was on the sign has nearly all faded white;  some graffiti is still readable(see pics below). This sign measures approx 16.5" by 26.5" an seems to be made of metal and masonite.  The trim on the edges of the sign has deteriorated over the years.   A true Apple Records Rarity!! Serious Offers Only Please!!!    From The Lisa Lebow Collection.    Price $3,000. or best offer

      
      


 Item A009. Ringo's Personal 1990 Mercedes Benz 560SEL Coupe !!! Offered is Ringo Starr's personal Mercedes that he and Barbara used whenever they were at his home in Beverly Hills, California USA.  Ringo used the car from 1990 through 2006 when it was sold to the current owner.  The current owner purchased it directly from Ringo on March 16, 2006 with supporting documentation that is included.  There are currently 51,000 miles on the car and it is in Excellent condition!!!   All the paperwork and the bill of sale list Richard Starkey as the owner.  Comes with the Bill of Sale that was signed directly by Ringo which we have had authenticated !!!!  Serious OFFERS Only Please!!!  Why own simply a Mercedes when you can own RINGO'S!!!!!   Email us at SALES@BEATLEBAY.COM   with your offers.

  Item B000 A Beautiful Reproduction Copy of One of the Most Sought After Record Albums by The Beatles:  The 1964 Stereo Vee Jay Records The BEATLES "PORTRAIT COVER" or The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage LP !!!   Offered is a stereo reproduction of the Beatles and Frank Ifield album that was originally issued in September 1964 by Vee Jay Records VJLP 1085!   This particular reproduction was made from an original 1964 Vee Jay Records ‘The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage’ OLD MAN album and cover...so the jacket itself is original from 1964 - meaning the inside cardboard construction is original; the back cover slick is original;  the record is original; the only part that has been reproduced is the front cover slick and it wraps around the top and bottom seams, plus the spine and tucks underneath the original back cover slick,  just as the originals were made.... very nice!!    Care was taken to ensure this reproduction copy has all the printing that the original copy would have:  printing on the spine,  it says STEREO on the top center plus has VJS 1085 printed on the top right corner.   You can see the hand-drawn couch The Beatles are sitting on at the bottom of the front cover.   This is a much better alternative than spending $10,000 or even $18,000 for an original stereo copy of this 1964 album.

This is one of the best reproduction copies we’ve ever seen!   It's an excellent bootleg copy of a very rare album, plus it’s the rare Stereo Version of the album cover jacket with the record ID number VJS1085 printed in the top right corner on the front slick plus it’s also printed correctly on the spine. The album cover grades Very Good plus or Excellent.   It also includes an original VJ1085 record album and the vinyl in OK condition.  Once again, the vinyl is graded only Good.   You're buying this for the cover; even though the record is original from 1964 and you can play it on your turntable too!  

What a great GIFT IDEA for that Beatles Fan who has almost everything!   SALES PRICE $275.

Item B001: A Beautiful Reproduction of THE BEATLES BANJO by Mastro Industries !!!  

Offered is an exact Reproduction of the 1964 Mastro Beatles Banjo with a nice photocopy of the original Instruction Booklet.   The only item that has been altered on this Mastro Banjo is the skin... only the banjo skin has been replaced!    Read on....These rare Beatles Banjos were originally manufactured by Mastro Industries in the USA in 1964 who also manufactured several other toy instruments such as guitars, ukuleles, drums and bongos.   They were all officially licensed by NEMS Enterprises Ltd in 1964 and sold up to 1966 in stores and by mail order in the USA.  Only The Beatles Banjos were made with a special plastics color combination of Red, Maroon & Gold Plastic Parts!   All the generic ones were made with white, marbled white, black, and sometimes blue plastic parts.   

If you already have an original Beatles Mastro Banjo but it has some cracked or missing parts, you could simply use this banjo to replace those red or maroon plastic cracked or broken pieces as this banjo is 100% intact and it's all in Excellent condition!

This MASTRO BANJO could have originally been a Beatles Mastro Banjo because of the red and maroon plastic colored parts it's made from.  All the plastic parts on the piece are 100% original !   The red parts are 100% red plastic!  The maroon parts are 100% maroon plastic!    The original bridge is 100% maroon plastic too.   The ink stamps on the head stock and fingerboard are 100% original...   Keep in mind that not all Beatles Banjos made by Mastro had "Beatles Graphics" on the head stock... some simply said "Mastro Banjo" as this one does... plus as shown in several vintage Mastro Industries Beatles promotional pamphlets and brochures.   We have simply replaced the banjo skin with an exact reproduction of the original Beatles Banjo skin.  The banjo skin is made of thin acrylic plastic material, just like the original, with graphics taken directly from an original Beatles Banjo.    They are correct size and color as the original skin was.  

There are no cracks in any of the plastic parts on the banjo.  You won't be disappointed with this great display item!    The strings are original vintage colored plastic strings, except 1 string has been replaced, the clear one.   The banjo comes with it's original maroon-colored plastic bridge.  None of the plastic parts on this piece are painted!!!   The banjo measures approx 21" by 9" by 3.25".   A Super Display Item!!!!  An original Beatles Banjo will cost upwards of $3k + today, IF you could find one!!!   Here's a great opportunity to pickup a super display item at a fraction of the cost!!  Overall in Excellent condition!!!

  Item B004:  The Beatles 1964 BALLOON Still Sealed in it's Original Packaging !!!   Offered is a Beatles Official Balloon from 1964 made in the USA by United Industries Inc., in Southington, CT.   These came in many different colors and this one is orange with black printing.   The original packaging has not been opened.    The large package says "BLOW UP! A FAB BEATLES BALLOON " .   Underneath the Beatles logo is a copyright symbol meaning this balloon was officially licensed by The Beatles thru their USA Licensing company SELTAEB.   Inside is the original balloon but we believe the rubber has long since dried up so it's best left still sealed rather than chance the balloon will still inflate.   When these items were originally found back in the 1980s, you could actually use the balloons, but now they are probably too old!   Still it's a great display item for any Beatles collector.     SALES PRICE $50.

  Item B006:  The Beatles 1964 Ultra Rare VJ1085 The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage Original Mono Album (LP) - "The Beatles Portrait Cover" !!!   

Offered is a mono 100% authentic The Beatles and Frank Ifield album that was originally issued in September 1964 by Vee Jay Records VJLP 1085!   This is one of the hardest to find BEATLES albums ever made!   VJ Records re-issued this album in the Fall of 1964 as a last-ditch effort to sell more Beatles albums.   This album was originally issued with a different cover:  it featured an Old Man drawing on the cover when first issued in early 1964.   Because the album only featured 4 Beatles songs, most collectors had already purchased those songs on various 45s or other Beatles albums so the Old Man cover LP didn't sell well.   So when VJ changed the cover to a nice full-color drawing of The Beatles, it really didn't seem to matter to the record buying public.... they had been fooled once before, but not again.  So because of the poor sales of this LP, even with the new cover, VJ Records had to pull the remaining stock from the shelves around the country because the law suite with Capitol Records had forbidden them from selling anymore Beatles records after November 1964.   Because of all of this, collectors now have a super rare Beatles album to try to find for their collections!   The mono is super difficult to find, and the stereo versions seem to be impossible to find these days! 

Here's your chance to fill that void in your collection with a REAL BEATLES PORTRAIT COVER!! Plus the condition is quite nice too! There is some light wear all over but this album was well taken care of.   There's the start of some ring wear on the cover plus each of the 4 corners have the most wear,  but the best things are there are no seam splits!   The seams are in quite nice condition all around!   The spine has all the print readable including the VJ1085 near the bottom corner: even though there is wear to the VJ1085 spine printing, you can easily read it while viewing it in person.  A Worse Condition REAL BEATLES MONO PORTRAIT COVER sold for $3550 recently on eBay...look at item number 124099774868.  This cover and record are in even better condition than that record!  Good Luck!!!    The album is in Excellent+ to NM- condition.    SOLD

This Beatles Jr. Guitar was well taken care of as there aren't any touchups to any of the graphics on the body of the guitar nor the top!   The only condition issue is what appears to be a burn mark on the side of the back body.   We hi-lighted the spot with a yellow circle.   There is also a 1" crack that extends from the burn mark down towards the middle.   It's hardly noticeable plus you cannot see the flaw from the frontside of the guitar.  The guitar still has all 4 original strings and pegs... this guitar was fitted from the factory with 1 dark nylon string and 3 solid color strings (orange, yellow & red).  The guitar comes with a great copy of the original cardboard backing card!!   It also comes with a beautiful color laser copy of the original 4 pg instruction booklet.  Overall the guitar is in Very Good+ condition.    SALES PRICE $350

 Item D009:  A Rare 1964 BEATLES In-Store Promotional Display for BEATLES WING DINGS SNEAKERS / TENNIS SHOES !!!   

Offered is a very rare Beatles item:    In 1964 The Beatles licensing company in the USA, SELTAEB, licensed many cool Beatles items around the world.   Well in the USA not many things were as cool as Official Beatles Sneakers!!   They were manufactured in the USA in Saco Maine by Wing Dings in 1964 through 1967 and they came in 2 different styles in 2 different colors.  There were lace up tennis shoes and there were slip on high top sneakers.   They both came in either blue or white canvas.   If you lived in Canada, you could also order them in cool pink canvas!   Offered here is the ultra rare in-store display sign that advertises these Beatles sneakers / tennis shoes.    It's in Very Good condition but because it was originally used in a shoe store back in the day, it has bumped corners, creasing, light stains, edge wear, even staple holes along the edges!   The back side has a large foldout cardboard easel which has been used but is completely intact!   So it appears this display was actually used a lot back in 1964... it would have sat on a countertop with the easel back being used;  the original price of the sneakers is neatly written in marker on the front left side;  at some point they must have stapled the display to a wall because too many girls were probably trying to steal the display for themselves!!   It's such a great advertising piece and one that belongs in a great Beatles collection!!   It could be yours today!! 

Overall the cardboard store display is in Very Good to Very Good+ condition.   A super rarity hardly ever seen anymore!!!   Price $3,495.

Offered is another very rare Beatles item:   In 1964 The Beatles licensing company in the USA, SELTAEB, licensed a very interesting item:  they were called Beatles Pom Poms and they basically amounted to a small furry stuffed animal with 2 eyeballs attached.   If you're a Star Trek fan then these would be the Beatle equivalent of Tribbles!!   Tribbles in the Star Trek universe were small furry creatures that humans loved.   They purred like cats if they loved you and screeched like a siren if they didn't!   They also ate and reproduced like crazy!!   Well, the Beatles Pom Pom craze didn't last long as finding a Pom Pom today is as rare as hens teeth!   So this cardboard store display is a super nice display item which displays Excellently!    The thick cardboard store display measures approximately 14" wide by 21.5" tall.   It was manufactured in the USA  and licensed by SELTAEB even though it's not marked as such!!  The display has some very light overall wear, a few light creases and a small water stain along the right edge.   The backside has a very large fold out cardboard easel which has never been used.   The water stains show more on the backside of the display.  

Overall the cardboard store display is in Excellent condition.   A super rarity hardly ever seen anymore!!!   Price $1,895.

 Item D012:  A Rare 1964 BEATLES In-Store Promotional Display for ICE-O-DERM® BEATLES PORTRAITS !!!  

 Offered is an ultra rare Beatles merchandising item from the heyday of Beatlemania:    In 1964 The Beatles licensing company in the USA, SELTAEB, licensed full color Portraits of The Beatles to be sold in a variety of venues: mail order and from this super cool store display!   The item being marketed was a full color Portrait of The Bealtes printed directly on heavy canvas;  they were 14" by 17" and were available only in the USA.  

This unused, unassembled cardboard store display measures approximately 17" wide by 17" tall.   It was never used and employed an easel stand on the backside.   It was manufactured in the USA by ICE-O-DERM. and fully licensed by The Beatles.  ICE-O-DERM is still in business today!   The display has some light overall wear, and a small surface tear on the backside, but overall it's in Excellent condition!   It was folded horizontally by the manufacturer for shipping.   We would speculate that this item would have likely been accompanied by a book of coupons which might have been attached at the top, under the lid.    We are also including with the store display one of the actual canvas Beatles Portraits from 1964!  It's in Good condition with a lot of edge wear all around, several edge tears and a repaired edge tear with tape on the backside.  The canvas portrait measures 14" by 17".

The cardboard display still has it's unused un-punched cardboard easel on the backside and stands approximately 20" tall by 11" wide.  The colors are very bright and vivid still with no fading.  These displays were mfg in two different color combinations with this one being the rarest by far!!!  The corners are good, there is only very light scuffing on the display and some super light wrinkling here and there.  Overall it's in Excellent condition. At the top, long ago, someone put a small piece of orange tape over the punched hole to reinforce that area which could be used to hang the display from. The original store owner wrote 5 ˘in the price tag circle at the top. All of the pins are VG+ condition with only one Ringo missing a drumstick.  All of the others are complete and very nice. This is a beautiful display item and one that rarely surfaces for sale!!!   SOLD

  Item K001:    The Beatles 1964 Kaboodle Kit by SPP (Standard Plastic Products) !!!  Offered is one of the cornerstone Beatles items in any serious Beatles memorabilia collection from the 1960s!   These BEATLES KABOODLE KITS were made in 10 different colors during 1964-1966 and were available only in the USA during that time.  These were officially licensed by The Beatles and NEMS Enterprises, Limited, London, England and are marked as such along the bottom front edge!   Not many vintage Beatles items were marked (C) NEMS Enterprises Ltd., but these Beatles Kaboodle Kits were.   They are very difficult to find in perfect condition as most of them were used by girls and boys alike during the 1960's.   They were mostly bought as lunchboxes even though no thermos was included;  plus many girls used them simply as a knick-knack carryall or as a sewing kit.  

We are offering a beautiful Yellow vinyl colored Kaboodle Kit in super nice condition!   The item was manufactured in the USA by SPP (Standard Plastic Products) out of New Jersey from 1964 through 1966 and is marked as such on the bottom.   The piece was fully licensed by The Beatles and NEMS Enterprises Ltd. and is also marked as such on the bottom left side.  The only flaw to the piece is a half inch seam split on the bottom left hinge-you can barely see the split in our first picture;  it's quite minor and barely shows once it's on display;  seam splits on the lower left hinge and the lower right side hinge is quite common on these Kaboodle Kits and it seems to happen to every kit if you open and close the lid too many times.  The right side hinge is not yet split.  The piece is very clean and was hardly used! The inside is white and immaculate!  The hardware is nice and shiny with no rust.  Rare!  Overall in Near Mint- condition!  Priced to Sell   SALES PRICE $875.

We are offering a RED VINYL BEATLES KABOODLE KIT in Good+ condition.  The item was manufactured in the USA by SPP (Standard Plastic Products) out of New Jersey from 1964 through 1966 and is marked as such on the bottom.   The piece was fully licensed by The Beatles and NEMS Enterprises Ltd. and is also marked as such on the bottom left side.  Seam splits on the lower left hinge and the lower right side hinges are quite common on these Kaboodle Kits and it seems to happen to every kit if you open and close the lid too many times and this Kaboodle Kit is no exception, there are seam splits on the bottom hinges, both left and right sides, plus there was several inches of splitting along the bottom main seam which has been repaired and is now solid.   But this kit was definitely used over the years!   The original owners name is still inside and you can see that Deborah was in the Third Grade when she owned this KK!!   So just image a third grader using this kit as a lunchbox for a couple of years!   That's the wear and tear that you'll see on this kit.   But even though it had lots of use, the piece still displays nicely and the 2 areas that are the worst, the left and right hinges, you really don't see the damage while the kit's is displayed from the front!   The red vinyl really sets off the pink-ish silk screened image of The Beatles on the front!  The hardware is nice and works just fine.  A Rare Kit to find in any condition!!!  Overall in Good+ condition!  SALES PRICE $395.
