    The Beatles and Roy Orbison Signed Tour Book from May-June 1963 UK Tour with Early Beatles' Fan Club Welcome Letter. An original 8" x 10.25" sixteen-page book for as series of shows in England and Scotland from May 18 to June 9. When originally planned, this tour was to be headlined by Orbison but due to the Beatles soaring popularity, Orbison consented to share top billing. Page four introduces the Beatles with four small individual photos; each has signed in blue ballpoint near their respective image. Roy Orbison has signed his full page photo on page six. Signatures of additional tour performers David Macbeth and lan Crawford are also included on later pages. Good condition - intact with light wear and crinkling.

    Also included is another prized piece of early memorabilia, a 6.75" x 8" form letter filled in by hand on "The Beatles' Fan Club" letterhead, Liverpool, no date. It thanks "Judy" for sending her Postal Order in and awards her membership card No. "1772" in exchange. It is signed "Freda" at the close. Freda Kelly is quite a celebrity in her own right. The story of her eleven years of employment by the Beatles was recently told in a film documentary titled Good Ol' Freda. Original mailing folds, very fine. COA from Heritage Auctions.
