SI27.  An Autographed Performer’s Pass For “The Great POP Prom” - The Only Time The Beatles And The Rolling Stones Played At The
           Same Event!

On September 15, 1963, an event took place that happened only once in The Beatles illustrious career: they shared the same stage as The Rolling Stones, who were at the time “up-and-coming”, yet even so, they were only mere footsteps behind The Beatles – who had a slim ‘head start’, having embarked on their amazing journey only slightly before The Stones.

Here is a set of Beatles autographs found on the back of a 'Performer's Pass', measuring 3” x 2 ½”, used for “The Great POP Prom” - which took place on this historic day at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London. The Pop Prom took place once each year, and it was a fundraiser for the Printer’s Pension Corporation. On this occasion, The Master of Ceremonies was well known British DJ Alan Freeman.

All four have signed on the back of this pass beautifully in blue ballpoint pen, with John Lennon inscribing “To Jill love from” immediately before. Both John and Ringo have added “X’s” after their signatures. A small area of paper loss (a punch hole) under John’s signature is more than likely related to the function of the pass and was almost certainly done on the day of the show. This is a nice set of autographs with an interesting history, from the one and only time that the bill topping Beatles performed at the same event as their  only true peers in the classic rock genre, their rivals The Rolling Stones…..$9,000
