No sale for signed Beatles item at New York auction

NEW YORK--A large piece of stage backdrop signed by the Beatles during their first live U.S. concert 50 years ago has failed to sell at a New York City auction.

Heritage Auctions spokesman Noah Fleisher said Saturday that the company will now try to privately broker the US$800,000 plastic wall section the Fab Four autographed on Feb. 9, 1964.

Other memorabilia items from the Beatles' historic appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" were bought by a high-end collector who asked not to be named.

Those included a signed "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" original fan club poster for US$59,375 and a "Beatles Meet the Beatles!" signed stereo LP for US$56,250.

Autographs from the Beatles, Ed Sullivan and Brian Epstein from the 1964 performance sold for US$125,000.
