    George Harrison Autograph Plus Billy Preston Memorabilia. This is a British Apple 45 sleeve (Apple 12; 1969) for Billy Preston's single "That's The Way God Planned It," signed in blue ink by George Harrison on the front. He added "Love from" above his signature. This autograph was obtained in person outside Abbey Road studios by the most famous of the "Apple Scruffs," Carol Bedford (who was from Dallas). Beatle expert and collector Mark Naboshek purchased it from Carol's father after her death. Also included are an 8 x 10 black and white photo signed by Billy Preston (the one individual who could legitimately claim the title of "Fifth Beatle"), and the Apple single "Get Back"/"Don't Let Me Down", credited to "The Beatles with Billy Preston." "Apple Scruffs" (a term coined by Harrison) were the hard-core Beatle fans who gathered outside Apple Records, Abbey Road studios, etc. on a daily basis in hopes of getting a glimpse of a Beatle. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
