    Description

    Beatles Group Autographed Photo Including Both Ringo Starr and Pete Best Signatures. This vintage photograph of the Beatles was taken in late 1961, when the group was still sporting the black leather look adopted in Hamburg and Pete Best was still the drummer. The back of the photo was signed in late 1962 by the group, however, after Best had been replaced by Ringo Starr. John, Paul, George, and Ringo have all signed boldly in black ink, with John and Paul adding "Love", and all four adding "XXX," which was common in the early days. Pete Best's signature was added later in blue ink, making this a truly rare collection of Beatle autographs. In Very Good condition, with some slight edge wear and several small stains, and several small scratches to the frame. The piece has been nicely matted with a Ringo-lineup custom matte to the front, and a cutaway to the back allowing viewing of the Best-lineup photo. COA from Tracks, LTD.
