    The Beatles: Stu Sutcliffe and Pete Best. Interesting lot of two items, one each from the Beatles that never were: Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best! First, a short but complete poem from Stuart Sutcliffe's hand on a 4.5 x 3 sheet clipped from Sutcliffe's personal poetry book, reading in full: "Cry me a song, love - Cry me a song, love - Cry me a song, love - And I'll fly to heaven above - I'll fly to heaven above love - With your love - With your love - Love." Accompanied by copies of the pages from Sutcliffe's poetry book where the stanza was removed. Also included in this lot is an 8 x 10 black and white photograph featuring the original Beatle lineup, including John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Stuart Sutcliffe, George Harrison, and Pete Best, nicely signed by Best in black felt tip marker. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
