Beatles' signed piece from first live TV show in 1964 to fetch 600k pounds at auction
A piece of stage scenery, which was signed by The Beatles after their first live appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 is set to fetch 600,000 pounds at an auction in New York.
The piece, which is four feet long and two feet wide, features caricature drawings of Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and John Lennon, along with a map of England.
The band also penned the message "The Beatles were here", the Daily Express reported.
Garry Shrum, of US-based Heritage Auctions, said that there is no more important band in rock 'n' roll than The Beatles and there was no moment more important in solidifying their worldwide popularity than the moment they played Ed Sullivan in 1964.
