The Rolling Stones - Full set of genuine Rolling Stones autographs from 1964, ex-Christies Lot [Christies London, 1st July 2009, page 20, lot number 88]. This full set of Stones autographs are on a sheet of white headed 'The Rolling Stones' note paper. The Rolling Stones signed and dedicated in blue ballpoint pen To Diane, Love Brian Jones, additionally signed in blue ballpoint pen by Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts, and in pencil by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. The note paper measures 7" x 8" [17.7cm x 20.2cm] and has been folded. According to the vendor these signatures were acquired when visiting a friend who worked as a fan club secretary at the Stones' offices in Soho, London. She was invited to take part in a film shoot with The Stones in the foyer of the London Palladium Theatre. The American comedian 'Red Skelton' was also featured in this film, and she obtained The Stones autographs on returning to the fan club offices after the shoot. Her friend also appears with Bill Wyman on page 10 of The Rolling Stones monthly [page 10 of issue No.2, 10th July 1964], which a copy is also included, along with a letter from Diane, and a copy of the page from the Christies Catalogue. This is a very nice set of Stones autographs with a very good provenance as well. The signatures are in EX condition, very clear and bold, the signed note paper would look great framed up with a period picture.
