Catalogue Note

Signed by the Fab Four to the armored car driver as they were transported to Shea Stadium from the Unisphere Heliport at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park on one of the most historic nights of their career. This collection of material comes directly from the employee of Wells Fargo, who shares his first-hand account of the evening in an accompanying 2 page letter; with 12 behind-the-scenes color Kodachrome slides of the concert taken by the guard, and a Wells Fargo six-point star badge (Wells Fargo deputized the Beatles that day, and they wore the badges during the concert). An audience of over 55,000 saw the band live, with the music no match for the noise continually erupting from the crowd.
