    Beatles - John Lennon and Paul McCartney Signatures on the Verso of a Promo Photo (Liverpool, 1962). A 5.75" x 4" deckle-edged b&w glossy photo of the group with instruments in their black leather outfits. On the back is printed "With Best Wishes from Paul Pete John George. The Beatles. April 5th 1962". The top left corner is signed: "Love to/ Joan/ from John/ Lennon/xxx" and at top right: "To Joan love/ from Paul/ McCartney/ xxx". These photos were given out at a Cavern Club concert honoring the Official Fan Club on the above date and these signatures were likely obtained at that event or soon thereafter. The McCartney signature is faded and smudged due to dampness; the Lennon is bold and bright. Photo is rough with creases and a tear barely touching the "Joan" at left. Good.
