This is a very important piece of memorabilia, sold at auction in June 2010 for a staggering USD $25,000 against an original estimate of USD $4,000- $6,000. Hard to imagine a more significant contract between artist and manager in the history of popular music, save for Brian Epstein's link up with the Beatles.
