Meet the Beatles for Real Contest: Win James McCartney's autograph!

James McCartney walking in Liverpool last year

Hello all of you visitors of "Meet the Beatles for Real!"   It is time for another contest!   This one isn't going to be a trivia contest, it is going to be a raffle.    However, unlike a traditional raffle, you do not have to pay money to enter. 

There will only be one winner of this raffle (no 2nd or 3rd place winners this time around).  The winning person will get a genuine James McCartney autograph that I obtained in person on June 4, 2013 at the Demo in St. Louis, Missouri.   It is signed on the booklet that came out of my copy of James McCartney's EP.   You won't get the CD however, because I listen to it all the time.  

Here is how you enter this amazing contest.

1.  Email a photograph that goes along with the theme of Meet the Beatles for Real.   Hopefully send me something you think I have never seen.   Send me a photo of one of the Beatles or Beatles family member taken by a fan, has a fan in the photo, the Beatles signing an autograph for a fan, etc.   Any photo that deals with the Beatles and fans.     Send your photo to

2.  I will email you back with your raffle number.   It is your job to keep your number.  I am not going to keep track of raffle numbers and names.

3.  I will announce the winning number on September 1, 2013.  If your number is the winner, then email me and let me know your home address so I can mail out the James McCartney autograph to you.  Pretty easy!

Only one entry per person for this raffle.   The numbers will be chosen at random by a number generator on the internet.   All entries must be in by 5:00p.m. Central Time on September 1, 2013.  Let me know if you have any questions and send in those photos!


  1. Who won the trivia contest? I'm sure you mentioned it somewhere, but I must have missed it!!

    1. Looks at the tags under "contest" and see who won. I still haven't mailed out the 3rd place winner's prize. Oops!
