Ringo takes pole position in the top right, leaving plenty of kisses to Sylvia, above the Hallmark message. Classic Ringo.

According to Ben Fried, top dog at auction site Catawiki, “This is one of the most exciting pieces of memorabilia we’ve seen yet, and with Beatle-mania still as strong as ever, we expect to see a bidding war commence over this particular lot.”
