    Beatles Yellow Submarine The Glove with John Production Cel Setup (United Artists/King Features, 1968). Original hand-painted production cels from the landmark Beatles animated movie Yellow Submarine were packaged and sold in stores in 1969-70. Here is an original 16 field 3-peghole setup of four cels that were at one time sold this way, stapled together in all four corners. The cels included the giant flying Glove, with the "O" from "LOVE" stuck on his enormous figure, plus Beatle John in his purple jacket and yellow pants; also included are two Pepperland animals. The setup is placed on a print background, for presentation purposes, and is in its original mat, with an opening of 15.25" x 11.25", and an overall size of 20" x 16". The COA with gold sticker, plus a second gold sticker from the original packaging is included. Mat has considerable wear and toning. Cels are somewhat wavy, but no paint damage. Very Good condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
