    a signed Beatles 1964 UK tour programme at Whytes.

    A signed Beatles 1964 UK tour programme  UPDATE: THIS WAS UNSOLD.

    A 1964 signed Beatles tour programme is one of many delights at Whyte’s Eclectic Collector sale in Dublin on June 13.  It is estimated at 4,500-5,000. The sale includes Robert Freeman’s photograph of The Beatles used for the Rubber Soul album sleeve, signed by Freeman and numbered 5/75. It is estimated at 300-500. A limited edition Duran Duran concert poster has an estimate of 100-150 and is one of 65 lots of rock, pop and cinema memorabilia.

    There is a huge selection of postcards used by Peter Holder to illustration period scenes in Ireland for film productions.  The sale also features sporting treasures and much to interest collectors. It is now on view at Molesworth St. in Dublin.

    UPDATE:  The sale grossed 220,000 with 80% of lots sold. The collection of postcards made over €22,000 and a collection of coins, estimated at 15,000 to 20,000 made over 40,000 thanks to spirited bidding from British and American collectors and dealers who had specially travelled to the saleroom.
