"When the Beatles were depressed-thinking the group is going nowhere, and this is a shitty deal, and we're in a shitty dressing room-I'd say, 'Where are we going, fellas?' And they'd go, 'To the top Johnny!' And I'd say, 'Where's that fellas?' and they'd say, 'To the toppermost of the poppermost!' and I'd say 'Right!' Then we'd all sort of cheer up." JOHN

THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST BEATLES COLLECTIBLE AS VERY FEW STAGE SECTIONS EVER COME TO THE MARKET AND THEY USUALLY SELL FOR $3,000-$4,000!!!!
I was able to carefully trim a small edge section to make this super rare display. It has a piece of card affixed to it that reads "From The Cavern-Liverpool 'The Birthplace of The Beatles' Comes This Genuine Piece Of The Cavern Club Stage On Which The Beatles Performed 292 Times During The Period 1961 To 1963. This is the original certificate to authenticate the piece. In September 1964 the 'Ray McFall' of the Cavern Club hosted a series of concerts entitled Beat Time For Oxfam to raise money for Liverpool's Freedom From Hunger Campaign. Ray thought it would be a good idea to cut the old stage up onto small pieces and sell them for charity so he had cards printed and affixed to pieces of the Cavern stage. This was originally bought at a Liverpool Beatles Auction, Adam Partridge who specializes in selling some unique and amazing Beatles items on a regular basis down the years and is in the ideal place to meet old Beatles fan from back in the day. Adam Partridge is a famous auctioneer from many BBC tv shows like 'Flog It' that specialise in auctions and buying & selling at auction. “While the cellar adjacent to the Cavern Club was being converted into the studio, Ray McFall [the proprietor of the Club] decided that the old Cavern Club stage was not big enough to accommodate the increasingly large amounts of amplification equipment that the groups used so he had the old stage removed and a new larger one built.


This special limited edition Cavern Club grouping comes with a coa card on each swatch of material, the film frames, the Cavern brick, and Cavern wood stage. In addition, the clothing display is stored in a dark blue, velvet like, zipper case. Just nine (9) of this particular Cavern Club grouping will ever be made, making this about as rare a grouping as you will ever find!

This is the story of the concert that shouldn't have been with a concert fee that shocked the world. 1964 was the beginning of Beatlemania in America. In February, 1964 the Beatles were on 3 Ed Sullivan Shows as "I Want To Hold Your Hand" took over the #1 chart position in America. By March 1964 the Beatles held the top 5 positions and 12 of the top 40 songs on the major surveys. In August 1964 The Beatles came back to America for an extensive concert tour. The big cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York were on the schedule, but Kansas City was not. That is until a man named Charles Finley took action. Charles Finley, owner of the Kansas City Athletic's baseball team, offered $50,000 to the Beatles to play Kansas City on an off date of September, 17, 1964. The answer was no, so he doubled the offer to $100,000, but again the Beatles said no. Finley went home frustrated, but came back later and put his pen to a check and wrote down $150,000 (equal to a million dollars in today money) and the Beatles said Yeah Yeah Yeah, the Kansas City concert was on. The author was seventeen in 1964 and reports on Beatlemania in America as well as his hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. The Beatles concert and press conference is covered in detail as well as a large selection of Beatles memorabilia examples. The book is loaded with relevant newspaper clippings, photos and personal comments from Kansas City fans. This is the most complete accounting of the KC concert to date. In addition, it's provides a historical look at Charles Finley, the Muehlebach Hotel (where The Beatles stayed) and Municipal Stadium (where the Beatles concert was held). A must read for all Beatle fans, especially those from Kansas City.
Welcome Beatles fans! You don't have to be from Kansas City to want to add this dynamic Beatles book to your collection. It is loaded with information about how Beatlemania was developed in England, their arrival in the USA, the Ed Sullivan shows and America's reaction to them. The book is loaded with full color photos of Bobbing Head Dolls, Remco Dolls, all of the Beatles trading card sets and boxes, wigs, dresses, magazines, books, record surveys, tennis shoes, lamp, pomade box, Flip Your Wig game, harmonica, boxed Revell models, Hallmark stamps, gum machine labels and so much more showing and telling both the Kansas City and the entire USA scene called Beatlemania.

The year was 1964…and you can go back in time! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

The trousers have the original Millings and Son bevo label and the additional label with hand written notes with a "John Lennon July 1967." After careful inspection and consideration it was determined that a small fragment of material (left by the tailor) could be removed without compromising the integrity of the trousers. The material was removed from the cuff area. The removal was done by a professional seamstress.
