The Beatles Only Known Autographs from August 1965 Shea Stadium Concert Signed to Driver of Their Armored Car.

Beatles members George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and John Lennon have all signed this piece of paper in vintage ballpoint pen on August 15th, 1965, during their iconic Shea Stadium Concert.

The autographs were signed to Mike Boyle, who was the driver of their armored car.

On August 15, 1965, The Beatles made rock ‘n roll history when they performed at Shea Stadium in Flushing, Queens, New York before a crowd of more than 55,000 frenetic fans. It shattered all previous attendance records for a concert and was the very first time a band had performed in a stadium. The event was well-documented, having been filmed in its entirety. The now-legendary concert film included not only the entire show, but several segments that preceded their appearance on the stage, which was located directly over 2nd base. The Beatles flew by helicopter onto the roof of the World’s Fair Building, located on the grounds of the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. From there, they were transported by Wells Fargo armored truck # 1040 into Shea Stadium, a distance of just over 100 yards.

This piece of paper was signed by the band just moments before they were to perform what is widely considered to be not only their most memorable concert ever, but arguably the single most famous concert of the past fifty years.

Good condition.
