    The Beatles: Signed Book Page from '62 with Pete Best! Before there was John, Paul, George, and Ringo there was John, Paul, George... and Pete! By spring of 1962 The Beatles were a permanent quartet and were on their way to superstardom. By that time, they had signed with Brian Epstein, recorded their first single ("My Bonnie"), and were discussing with renowned producer, George Martin, the possibility of producing their first album. Everything seemed to be falling into place, and it appeared that John, Paul, George, and Pete were on their way to being household names. Encapsulating this unique moment in Beatles history, presented here is an autograph book from 15-year-old Judy Ross, who in March of 1962 decided to bring her book to a favorite UK hangout, Stroud Subscription Rooms, and obtain the signatures of the various up-and-coming bands who played the venue. Among the myriad of signatures is a beautiful page signed by all four Beatles in a crisp blue ballpoint pen, "Love to Judy from Paul McCartney xxx THE BEATLES," "George Harrison (thank-you xxxxxx)," "Love to Judy from John Lennon xxx," and, "Love to Judy, from Pete Best, xxx." It was only a few months after these autographs were obtained that Pete was abruptly removed from the band and replaced with Ringo Starr, cementing the lineup that would forever be recognized as The Beatles. Measuring 6.5" x 8", the page stands in overall Fine condition, with reverse tape remnants not affecting the signatures. All four signatures are vibrant, with McCartney's rating a solid "9" and Lennon, Harrison, and Best rating a "10"! Complete sets of Beatles' signatures from the Pete Best era are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and few can compare to the quality of this exceptional example. With COA from PSA/DNA.
