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's Rotogravure 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.    SALES PRICE $2,495.

Item B001:The Beatles REPRODUCTION BEAT BONGOS in a REPRODUCTION Beatles Bongo BOX !!!   Offered is set of Reproduction 1964 Mastro Beatles Beat Bongos in a reproduction Mastro Beatles Beat Bongos Box.  These were originally manufactured by Mastro Industries in the USA who also manufactured several other toy instruments such as guitars, ukuleles, drum sets and banjos.   They were officially licensed by NEMS Enterprises Ltd in 1964 and sold up to 1966 in stores and by mail order in the USA.  This high quality reproduction set of bongos with box was made from a set of generic Mastro bongos!!!  They do come with a set of original Mastro Bongos Instruction Booklet, which is the exact same booklet that came with the Beatles Bongos!!  Mastro did not manufacture a Beatles specific Instruction Booklet for the Beatles Bongos; instead they included the generic instruction booklet, which is included in the sale of this set of Bongos.  The graphics on the reproduction set was made from scans directly from the Beatles Bongos in the box.  The stickers are exactly the same as the originals!  The bongos are painted red and are not made of red plastic as the original Beatles bongos were.    The box is an exact replica with Beatles graphics applied to the front, sides and top of the box.  The box top is also die cut just like the original one is, so you can display the bongos just like the original ones were.    The box measures approx 15" by 8" by 7".  The bongos are approx 14" by 7" by 6".   A Super Display Item!!!!  An original set of Beatles Bongos in the box will cost around $10,000 USD today, IF you can find a set!!!  Our reproduction set displays exactly as an original set would for a fraction of the cost!!!  ALSO SEE THE BEATLES YEAH YEAH GUITAR on the Backing Card (High Quality Reproduction) WE HAVE TOO!!!  Please note: we have only 1 of these reproductions currently available!!!

Item B015.  BEATLES TO THE USA T.W.A. AIRLINES FLIGHT BAG !!!   Offered is a Beatles 'Fantasy' Item from the 1970s.  This item was produced in limited numbers during that time period and today rarely surfaces for sale!  The Beatles To The U.S.A. Flight Bag measures approx 14" by 10" by 5" and is in Excellent condition.  It is printed on both sides the same in bold white print: "THE BEATLES TO THE U.S.A. AUGUST 1965" and it carries the TWA Airlines logo at the bottom of each side.  It has a zippered top which works fine and the carry strap is in Excellent working condition too.  We say this is a 'fantasy' item because it is believed that this piece never actually existed in the 1960s.   Most Beatles dealers will remember seeing these at some of the first Beatles conventions around the country in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  Even if it's not a legitimately made NEMS Enterprises Ltd product licensed by The Beatles nor made in the Sixties, it's still a very nice large display item!!!  It's made of heavy red vinyl with white piping.  A very well made item that has never been used!!  In Excellent to Near Mint condition SALE PRICE $750.

  Item D001:  A Very Rare 1972 USA In-Store Promotional Poster for The BEATLES ALPHA OMEGA Box Set LP !!!   Offered is a very rare 1972 Audio Tape Records promotional poster mfg to promote The Beatles Alpha Omega 4 LP Box Set which was being advertised on Television across America at the time!!    This 4 LP Box Set was an unauthorised recording but was being sold to collectors all across the USA at the time via TV and Radio commericals.   Apple Records soon got invovled and filed a law suit in NY state court but not before tens of thousands of the box set were sold.   This prompted the issue of the 1973 Apple Records releases The Beatles 1962-1966 and The Beatles 1967-1970 double albums!    Any Beatles collector growing up in the 60s and 70s will remember this great box set of LPs!!  It included 60 Beatles songs and even some solo-Beatle songs.  It was a great set of records to own at the time and the artwork on the box set was terrific too!   During 1972 Audio Tape even produced 2 very rare promotional posters for the box set, one banner poster and this larger poster.   Overall the poster grades Very Good, but if matted and framed would display excellently!!   Best of all the colors on the poster are still very bright and vivid!!    The left white border has a small piece missing and there is a 7" edge tear at the top right corner that has a tape repair on the backside.   Other than that, it's in pretty nice condition.  The corners are not missing any pieces nor are there any tack holes in it either.   The poster measures 25" by 38" overall.    This is a very rare item to find in any condition and is the first time we've offered one for sale since we sold a copy of the equally rare Banner poster about 6 years ago.   We know of only a handful of these posters that exist today as most of the Alpha Omega albums were sold by mail order, but a few record stores in the NY/NJ area carried the LP for sale in their retail outlets, thus having a need for promotional posters.  The poster is rolled and will be shipped as such.  It's a great example of a very rare limited edition USA promo poster for The Beatles Alpha Omega 4 album box set from 1972!!!     SALES PRICE $995. or best offer.

  Item D002:  A Very Rare 1970 Apple Records In-Store Promotional Display for George Harrison's All Things Must Pass Album - Still Sealed in it's Original Apple Records Shipping Box!!!   Offered is a very rare 1970 Apple Records promotional display mfg to promote George Harrison's newest album, ALL THINGS MUST PASS!!!  This promotional display was made under license from Apple Records Corp., USA in 1970 and is a large countertop cardboard display used to hold both 8 track and Cassette copies of All Things Must Pass!!!  The display itself is quite rare in any condition to find, but this one is Still Sealed in it's original Apple Records shipping box!!!  The display has never been taken out of the shipping box, ever!!!  One end of the shipping box, the original sealing tape has a 6" split, just enough so you can see inside the unbuilt store display !!!  The display inside is in Mint Condition with the original instruction sheet.  The shipping box itself is in Excellent condition.  Extremely Rare and the Only One We've Ever Seen!!!  The shipping box is quite large measuring approx 28" long by 16.5" wide by 1" thick.  The printing on the outside of the shipping box states "OPEN IMMEDIATLEY! This Is Your GEORGE HARRISON ALL THINGS MUST PASS Tape Merchandiser", next is the Apple Logo under which is printed "Apple Records" and finally "Printed in U.S.A.".  We've only seen a couple of these countertop displays ever for sale, so below is one of those pictured.  Again, the display pictured is not the one for sale... the display for sale is unbuilt still sealed inside the original Apple Records shipping box!!!  Given the size of the shipping box, it's likely this is a large display, possibly 16" wide by 24" tall?!!  SALES PRICE $1,995. or best offer.

  Item D008 1969 The Beatles Abbey Road In-Store Promotional Floor Display!!!   Manufactured in 1969 in the USA by Apple Records was this super elaborate In-Store Promotional-Only Floor Display promoting the latest Beatles album at the time...The Beatles Abbey Road!!!   This display is complete with all parts and in Very Good+ to Excellent condition!!!  This was the last large cardboard Point of Purchase(POP) display mfg by Capitol or Apple Records to promote The Beatles!!!  This display is quite large and very impressive in person as it stands 5˝ feet tall with a huge enlargement of the Abbey Road album cover at the top!!  This POP display was sent out only to select record stores in the USA in the Fall of 1969 to promote the latest Beatles LP!!  This Beatles Abbey Road display is one of the largest Beatles promotional displays ever made by Capitol or Apple Records in the 1960s to promote The Beatles!!! It features a record bin which could hold up to 2 dozen copies of the new Abbey Road LP!!!  It is Very Rare to find this display totally complete!!!  The top section of the display measures approximately 22" square and is die-cut around each Beatle so when assembled, it gives a very cool 3-D type effect!!! The top section also has the original fold-out cardboard backing section which is critical for this top section to be presented correctly! The top section of the display is complete and grades VG+; although there are a few light creases on the top and on the Beatles themselves.   We believe some of the creases found on the punch-out die-cut Beatles probably happened when they were first punched out unless the person was very careful.   The base section of this display is very rarely found today!!  We have seen several top sections of this display over the years with no base!!!  This display also includes the original black cardboard pole and original rare 2-piece black base, both in Excellent condition.  The printed "cracks on the arrows" around the base were made purposely similar to the cracks in the wall on the back cover of the LP!  Each side of the record bin features a bright green colored Apple logo;  the center of the bin is printed "The BEATLES" in the same green.   A rare display to find totally complete.     SALES PRICE $6,500. *

All of the graphic images on the guitar were applied using the same permanent ink that Mastro did back in 1964!!!   The graphics are the same as used on the Yeah Yeah Guitar.  The guitar has all 6 of it's original colored plastic nylon strings too and all 6 of it's original plastic guitar string tuning pegs.   The guitar even has it's original vintage rope with tassel still attached to the top of the guitar and the guitar's bottom!!!  It also comes with a copy of the Mastro Beatles Yeah Yeah Guitar Instruction Booklet, taped to the backside of the guitar, just like the original one was!!!   About 10 years ago we found the ONLY original Beatles Yeah Yeah Guitar on it's original Backing Card STILL SEALED!!!!   That has been the only backing card for this guitar EVER FOUND!!!  Before we sold the piece, we made scans of the backing card.   The guitar measures approx 21" by 6.5" by 2.5".  The backing  card is approx 23.75" by 8"" and is made of sturdy corrugated cardboard just like the original.    A Super Display Item!!!!  An original Beatles Yeah Yeah Guitar on it's original Backing Card would cost at least $12,000 USD today, THAT'S IF YOU COULD FIND ONE!!! This one could be yours for a fraction of the cost of an original one!!!  The overall condition of the guitar is Very Good+:  there are a few stress cracks on the guitar, but overall it's quite solid!!! No chips or missing pieces!!!  Please note: we have only 1 of these reproductions available!!!   ALSO SEE THE BEATLES MASTRO BONGOS in the BOX (High Quality Reproduction Set) WE HAVE TOO!!!    SALE PRICE $795
