A ticket believed to possibly be the only one in existence for a hotel reception on the day after the Beatles' appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” is being sold by Fab4info.com, a spokesman told Beatles Examiner Feb. 4.

“I thought you might be interested in maybe featuring this reception ticket which was held for the Beatles in the Plaza Hotel on 10th February 1964, the day after 'The Ed Sullivan Show,' and the day before their first concert in America (in Washington, D.C.) for the presentation of a gold disc for 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' for 1 million unit sales and also for another disc for 'Meet The Beatles!' for 1 million dollars U.S. in sales,” a spokesman said.

According to the company, the presentation was made to the Beatles by Alan Livingston, then head of Capitol Records. They say the ticket is believed to be the only one left in existence.
