$800K signed stage wall from Beatles' 1964 Ed Sullivan appearance fails to sell at NYC auction

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

A large piece of stage backdrop signed by the Beatles during their first live U.S. concert 50 years ago has failed to sell at a New York City auction. Heritage Auctions spokesman Noah Fleisher said Saturday that the Dallas-based company will now try to privately broker the $800,000, 4-foot-by-2-foot plastic wall section the Fab Four autographed on Feb. 9, 1964.

Other memorabilia items from the Beatles' historic appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" were bought by a high-end collector who asked not to be named. Those included a signed "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" original fan club poster for $59,375 and a "Beatles Meet the Beatles!" signed stereo LP for $56,250.
