Interesting story behind this signed menu from this tour I just purchased.
This set dates from when the band played in Jersey on the 21st and 22nd of August of 1964.
They stayed at the Sion Hall Hotel.
The original owner had a friend whose sister was a waitress there and got this menu signed by the band.
She wasn’t much of a fan and then gave it to her sister, who traded it to the owner for a belt.
8 moves later, roughly 47 years, found in the attic by the daughter of the original owner.
And treasured now by me.

Here’s another crazy rarity from this tour and collector Ira Korman.
A signed poster from the tour bought directly from a member of the Barron Knights!!!
Amazing.
