“Meet The Beatles!”


Extremely rare original guaranteed 100% authentic very early true 1t East Coast stereo pressing of Meet the Beatles in a factory sealed condition. Never opened never played in 55 years. Original thick cardboard single type paste over cover with the very early 1st dark brown 'Beatles' banner. The 1st version cover without the 'George Martin, Producer' credit. Very early 1st press with the RIAA 3 Identification Number on the back cover, identifying it as a Capitol Records, Scranton, PA, Pressing Plant issue. The cover is in fantastic condition without any wear or splits. All of the 4 corners are sharp and the spine is rigid with a fully readable text. The shrink wrap is fully intact with the original breathe holes. This copy is from a private collection and comes with an original unused promotional teaser "The Beatles Are Coming!" wigs sticker, which you could affix to the cover yourself if wanted to. This teaser sticker is among the earliest known items of Beatles memorabilia and was a part of Capitol's initial January 1964 commercial plan to promote the release of the "Meet The Beatles" album and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" single. It's very rare to find an unused sticker in such a great condition. Original Capitol Records ST-2047 mono catalog number Keystone print black label with a multicolored spectrum ("Rainbow") band along the label's edge without the "subsidiary" print. Original Capitol Records Royal blue printed paper inner sleeve with adverts for other Capitol Records releases is seen at the mouth of the cover through the intact shrink wrap. Fantastic final upgrade factory sealed copy.




ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS! USPS can no longer accept or deliver international mail temporary to several countries due to the service impacts. Please check whether your country is on the list of temporary service and guaranteed-delivery suspensions. Additionally, please take into consideration that the disruption of air mail schedule causes significant delays, which affect the expected delivery date declared by eBay and USPS. From our side, we guarantee the prompt shipping of the item within 24 hours after receiving payment.

Please pay attention that we DON'T ship to Russia and Germany. No exceptions. We'll immediately cancel the transaction if our policy conditions are violated. Sorry about that.


Realizing how important it is to secure the safety of the item you've paid your money for, I'll put my best effort into packing the records as best as possible, triple boxing them into the specialized professional boxes, with the two outer boxes having a special construction with extended cardboard on the edges to prevent the record covers' corners from getting damaged during the transit, and will also put the vinyl outside of the cover (of course, unless it's a sealed record) to prevent the splitting. I always try responding to the messages, but please, before sending me a message, make sure that the answer to your question isn't included in the description. I'll use my right to block a buyer, who doesn't correspond to my idea of politeness, culture and respect toward each other. If you want to participate in my auction, please be honest and positive, and I'll be mutual with you. I'll remove the bids of a buyer with zero rating, unless he contacts me prior to placing a bid.
