Baby You Can Buy Our Card …
From The Quarry Men Days

A piece of Beatles history is up for grabs, but it’s so old — or vintage — it goes by a different name.
If ya don’t know … John Lennon‘s first band wasn’t The Beatles, it was The Quarry Men. He formed the group in 1956, later added Paul McCartney and George Harrison … then made their famous name change in 1960.
Before that, though, the lads from Liverpool printed out business cards for The Quarry Men and an original — one of just a few known to exist — is up for sale. That’s the good news. The bad news is … baby, you’ll need to be a rich man (or woman) to afford it.
The roughly 3.5 x 2-inch piece of paper and rock ‘n’ roll history is going for $32,500.
As for the card’s origin story … a collector bought it from a woman living in a Liverpool suburb 30 years ago. She sold off a bunch of membership cards and tickets she’d collected from her days hitting the clubs there in the late ’50s and ’60s.
The card’s been down a long and winding road — it’s a little worn with some creases and stains, but that’s part of its charm.
The Quarry Men card is available at Moments In Time … along with other Beatles items and more.
