Phenomenons such as The Beatles are not a regular thing for the music industry, especially nowadays. With the band’s legacy still alive and well, the first contract they ever signed will now be auctioned and fans are expected to go crazy all over again. According to new reports, New York’s Heritage Auctions will be placing the band’s now precious first ever recording contract up for auction on September 19. If you are actually thinking of obtaining the collectible item, then start preparing a good $150,000, ‘cause that’s the expected price of the six-page contract that The Beatles first signed. Other items to be auctioned include an autographed “Love Me Do” single, a postcard Ringo Starr sent to his grandmother, the menu of a Swiss restaurant signed by the band and four psychedelic posters created by Richard Avedon. Original Beatles line-up, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best, signed the contract to provide backing vocals to 1961’s “My Bonnie” by Tony Sheridan, which was released under Polydor. At the time, they were credited as Beat Boys. Signed in Hamburg, Germany, the contract preceeded the band’s live gigs in the country and their very own first hit, “Love Me Do”.
