#749 - Beatles: John Lennon Signed 'Meet the Beatles!' Album Estimate: $8,000+

Rare stereo Meet the Beatles album, signed by Lennon at the Helping Hand Marathon

Meet the Beatles stereo album signed neatly on the front cover in blue ballpoint by John Lennon. In fine condition, with some minor tape remnants to corners of reverse. The record is not included. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, which reads, in part: "This cover was signed on Saturday May 17, 1975, when John was the special guest host for the weekend at the W. F. I. L. 'Helping Hands Marathon' in Philadelphia. This event was open to the public, and for a small donation, John would sign items of choice brought in by the donators."

From May 16-18, 1975, Philadelphian rock station WFIL sponsored the Helping Hand Marathon, a weekend fundraiser to raise money for multiple sclerosis. On the invite of the station's DJ Larry Kane, Lennon spent the entire three days answering phones, taking pledges, and meeting fans; he even did the weather report for Kane's broadcast on WPVI-TV. Lennon-signed US Capitol Records Beatles albums are exceedingly rare and desirable, with this example enhanced furthermore by its wonderful back-story.
