    Beatles Fully Autographed Cavern Club Booklet, Including Both Ringo Starr and Pete Best This vintage 1963 Season Cavern Club membership booklet and additional pages from a similar 1961 booklet gave the young fan who owned it the rare distinction of having signatures by five members of the Beatles, namely John, Paul, George, Ringo, and the group's original drummer, Pete Best.
    The signatures are featured on several pages within the booklet and on pages from a 1961 version of the booklet, and were obtained by a young fan in Liverpool named Sheila Stewart. One signed page bears the inscriptions "To Sheila love from John Lennon X" and "To Sheila love from Paul McCartney XXX" in blue ink. Another bears signatures in red ink from McCartney, Starr, Best, and Gerry Marsden of Gerry & The Pacemakers, with Starr adding "The Sensational" and "DRUM" to his autograph. George Harrison signed on the following page in red ballpoint, and Best inscribed "Lots of Love to Sheila Pete Best XXX" in red ink.
    A great collection of Beatles signatures, signed while on the cusp of celebrity. Signed Cavern Club membership books are very rare, and few signed by the Beatles are known to exist. The presence of Best's signature makes this even more desirable.
    The booklet measures approximately 4.5" x 2" when closed, and exhibits expected wear. In overall Very Good condition, with some slight edgewear, creases, and small stains. LOA from Frank Caiazzo. COA from Heritage Auctions.
