The rare postcard signed by the Beatles John, Paul, George and Jimmie is expected to reach at least £5,000
A rare Beatles postcard is being sold off with the signature of the drummer who replaced Ringo when he fell ill.
Jimmie played 10 shows as Ringo’s replacement from June 3 – 15 1964 after the Beatles drummer suffered a bout of tonsillitis.
Londoner Jimmie got the call to join the band after he was spotted by manager Brian Epstein playing with Georgie Fame and the Flames.
Following a six song audition, the 24-year-old was given a Beatles haircut and told to pack his bag for a flight to Denmark the next day, reports Ultimate Classic Rock and Culture.
