Retired nurse Jackie Marsden is on track for a windfall today when a Beatles LP she has cherished for 50 years goes up for auction.
In 1963, all four members of the group signed her album With the Beatles. Today it is expected to fetch at least £3,000 at Boldon Auction Galleries in South Tyneside.
Jackie’s album cover was signed after her sister Christine’s best friend, 15-year-old Margaret Svenson from Sunderland, won a competition to name the next Beatles LP.
Her winning suggestion of Beatles for Sale earned her a meeting with the group at a hotel in Carlisle in November 1963. Her friend Christine Gatenby gave Margaret her Please Please Me Beatles LP to be signed by the foursome.
