You can make the Beatles fan in your life very happy this holiday season -- if you’re feeling particularly generous. And if your Beatlemaniac potential giftee doesn’t put Ringo first among the Fab Four.
Heritage Auctions is offering up a postcard signed by the Beatles when the Liverpudlians were resident rockers in the German city of Hamburg, a couple of years before they hit it big.
They were already big enough in Hamburg, however, that they had their own band-specific postcard offering the group’s “best wishes” on April 5, 1962. Heritage Auctions’ “buy now” price for the collectible: $12,500. The auction is open until Dec. 2.
