Early Beatles concert poster sells for $7K

Here's a look at a 1963 poster for a Beatles show at Harrogate, which sold for £5500 ($7175.49) at auction this week - much more than anticipated. The estimated high price was £1500-2000.
Tennants specialist Kegan Harrison said: “It is rare to find any Beatles concert posters, let alone one in this fine condition, as their touring career was very short with less than 1000 concerts in total - many of which pre-dated their debut LP.”

The timing of the concert is significant, and the billing ‘the recording stars of Please Please Me’. The Fab Four were performing in Harrogate just as their career was taking off.
