The Beatles' - Signed Beatles Album Expected To Fetch Thousands At Auction

An autographed copy of The Beatles' second U.S. album gifted to George Harrison's throat doctor 50 years ago is set to go under the hammer at a memorabilia auction next month (Mar14).

The Meet The Beatles! vinyl was signed by Harrison and his bandmates and given to Dr. Jules Gordon as a thank you after he successfully treated the singer/guitarist for tonsillitis in February, 1964.

The treatment allowed him to perform as part of the Fab Four's U.S. Tv debut on The Ed Sullivan Show days later after missing out on rehearsals.

The lot is expected to fetch at least $10,000 (£6,250) when it goes up for grabs as part of RR Auction's March Marvels of Modern Music sale.

Other Beatles keepsakes also featured in the auction include a sketch of a naked woman and a sheep by John Lennon and a signed first pressing of their debut Ep, Twist and Shout, both of which have starting bids of $1,000 (£625).
