Description

    The Beatles Band-Signed Cavern Club Booklet, Including Pete Best. This vintage 1963 Season Cavern Club membership booklet and additional pages from a similar 1962 booklet gave the young fan who owned them originally the rare distinction of having signatures by five members of the Beatles, namely John, Paul, George, Ringo, and the group's original drummer (who was replaced by Ringo in 1962), Pete Best.
    The signatures are featured on several pages within the booklet and on pages from a 1962 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. Accompanied by an LOA from noted Beatles historian Frank Caiazzo.
