Signed With the Beatles album makes $41,000 at RR Auction

The album, signed by all four members of the band and in superb condition, sold for $40,726. A rare UK stereo first pressing, first cover edition complete with the original record, it is described by the auction house as "virtually nonexistent", such is its rarity.
The album was signed on December 7, 1963, a very busy day for the band, who had taped a special edition of the BBC's Juke Box Jury show that morning, before giving a special northern area fan club concert at the Liverpool Empire.
Following this, they went to the Odeon Cinema to give two more live performances, performing a 10-song set as part of the UK winter tour. The fan met the band backstage at the Liverpool Empire.
Paul McCartney's handwritten lyrics to the White Album song Why Don't We Do It in the Road? also fared well, selling for $36,100. With McCartney jotting a few lines of the song followed by a 2010 signature, the piece was originally donated by the Beatle to a charity auction in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Signed Beatles albums are exceedingly rare, and as time passes, they are becoming even scarcer. That's why we're delighted to offer a signed copy of A Hard Day's Night for sale, which is one of only 8-10 known to exist - far rarer than the 15-20 known fully signed With the Beatles albums.
