DescriptionThe Beatles' Pete Best Drumsticks, 20 in All, 10 of them Signed.
A group of 20 drumsticks total; 10 of them were signed by the original Beatles timekeeper with a black Sharpie. (Errata: Our paper catalog describes this lot as "twenty signed drumsticks," but only half of them were autographed by Pete, as you can see in the picture.)
Each one has "Pete Best – The Beatles" printed in black on them. No manufacturer is listed, nor is size. Each one has a nylon tip. All appear to be unused and manufactured in the last 20 years. When held, sticks have a feel between a 3A model size and a 5B model size. Measures 16" in length. In Very Good condition with minimal wear with some fading on the black letter printing. COAs from Tracks Ltd. and Heritage Auctions.
