  ORIGINAL 1964 COMPLETE SET OF FOUR
"WHITTIER HOTEL BEATLES BED SHEETS"
MFD. BY EINHORN-VICTOR PRODUCTIONS, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, 1964

THESE Rare and Original 1964 set of four documents are from the “Executive Office” of The Whittier Hotel in Detroit, which features a 1″ square of fabric cut from the bed sheets of a room The Beatles slept in on September 6th, during their first tour of the U.S. in 1964.

The small sampleS of sheetS ARE glued to a graphic of a bed – and this complete set of four is each designated as having been snipped from the linens of John, Paul, George and Ringo. The letterhead proclaims The Whittier to be “A Distinguished Hotel” – although that’s certainly called into question by the sheer fact that they chose to sell the bed sheets of their celebrity guests.

Each piece of sheet is attached to a 6"x 9" thick cream-colored parchment Letter from the Managing Director of the Whittier attesting to it's authenticity.

It turns out this enterprise was the brainchild of Richy Victor and Larry Einhorn, two employees of WBKB television in Chicago. Victor and Einhorn came up with the sheet scheme to cash in on the raging Beatlemania of the day, making a deal with The Whittier to buy the Beatle bed linens for $400 when the lads checked out. “We told ‘em to plug the rooms up as soon as the Beatles left, seal ‘em up like a murder scene,” recalled Victor in an interview 20 years later. The two men traveled to both The Whittier in Detroit and Kansas City’s Muehlebach Hotel with lawyers and witnesses, getting signed affidavits from the hotels that the Beatles had indeed slept in the rooms. they THEN cut the sheets into 164,000 little squares, randomly assigned each piece to John, Paul, George or Ringo, and placed them on the market to collectors and fans.

EACH OF THE JOHN, PAUL, GEORGE AND RINGO BED SHEET DOCUMENTS REMAIN IN STUNNING NEAR MINT "AS NEW" CONDITION, WITH NO ISSUES EXCEPT for THE USUAL small  "SPOTting" ON THE BED SHEETS DUE TO THE DRIED GLUE that holds them in place..

CONDITION : NM "AS NEW"
