"...One of the nicest Lennon signed "Double Fantasy" albums known to exist." ~ Frank Caiazzo

This rare "Double Fantasy" LP has been autographed beautifully on the back cover in blue ballpoint pen by both John Lennon and Yoko Ono, with facial caricatures of both drawn by John. It has been inscribed "To Karen" (Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo's letter of authenticity notes that Karen was working in the studio with John during the sessions.) Mr. Caiazzo's LOI, which is included with this rarity, also observes: "This LP cover is an excellent example, signed as nicely as it is, with facial caricatures drawn by John, and is one of the nicest "Double Fantasy" albums known to exist."

John Lennon autographed "Double Fantasy" album covers are incredibly rare, with fewer than 10 coming to market in the past 33 years (Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo puts the number at 8 or 10 - including the last one John signed on the night he died, which sold to a private buyer in 1999 for an estimated $460,000; this same LP was most recently offered by auction house Moments in Time with an expected $850,000 selling price. 

The reason for such scarcity is two-fold:

* The album was released only 21 days before John died, and he signed VERY FEW due to the fact that he didn't have much time to sign them.

* The few people who got these were either close friends of John's or people in the business who won't sell at any price. 

As Lennon's legacy grows, so too does the value of his memorabilia. According to the industry's PFC40 Autographs Index, Lennon's autograph has risen in value by 756.1% over the past 10 years - a significant leap indeed. Meanwhile, collectors remain fascinated by the 'firsts' and 'lasts' of John Lennon's life, whether it's his earliest-known autographs or his last-ever signatures. 

This rare piece of Beatles history has been beautifully museum quality framed with a photo of both John and Yoko at the Dakota during happier, more peaceful times.

A Frank Caiazzo LOA is included.
