Item Description
The standard size bobbing head set (see item #3107) is one of the most classic 1964 Beatles items. However, many collectors are unaware or have never seen in person this tremendous set which is identical in design but towers over those bobbers as each of these are 14 to 15" tall. They were produced in very limited quantities and only available to retailers for use as store display models. Incredible detailed painted composition w/facsimile signature decal on front of each base. Underside of each has ©1964 Car Mascots Inc. ink stamp and sticker. Three stickers are complete, sticker for George has some edge flakes. All three guitar heads were missing but have professionally crafted replacements. Ringo has original drum sticks, one a tiny bit loose but still firmly attached w/just a pair of very tiny paint craze line to his fingers. Using a black light for thorough inspection reveals a small/minor touch-up or two to each but professionally done so invisible to the naked eye. As is, the set displays NM. In our 45 years we have never offered even one of these, let alone the complete set. We have seen this rare set sell in excess of $10,000. One of the most sought after Beatles items, a must have for any serious collector. From the Carl Lobel Collection.
