Beatles 1st Recording Contract Going To Auction

The Beatles‘ first recording contract is set to go on sale at auction in September.

The document was signed by the band in Hamburg, Germany in 1961, during a recording session that produced the single ‘My Bonnie’.

The contract will now be auctioned at New York’s Heritage Auctions on September 19, with its value estimated at $150,000 (£95,500).

The item is being sold by the estate of Uwe Blaschke, a late Beatles historian who died in 2010. See a picture of the contract below.

“Not many people know that The Beatles started their careers in Germany,” said Beatles expert Ulf Kruger.

“The Beatles had their longest stint in a club in Hamburg at the Top Ten Club. They played there three months in a row, every night. The style they invented in Liverpool, they cultivated in Hamburg.”

The auction lot also includes an autographed copy of the ‘Love Me Do’ single, a 1960 postcard that drummer Ringo Starr sent to his grandmother from Hamburg and a restaurant menu signed by the band while they were filming their Help movie in 1965.
