Lot 7011: Vintage red ballpoint signatures and inscription, "To Ruth, Love from the Beatles, Ringo Starr, xxx," and "John Lennon, xxx," and in fountain pen, "Paul McCartney, xxx," on an off-white 5.5 x 3.5 card. Lennon signs for an absent George Harrison in black ballpoint, "George Harrison, xxx." Handsomely double-matted and framed with a cheerful image of the Fab Four to an overall size of 23 x 16.5. A vertical crease to right side (passing through two letters of the McCartney signature), slight toning and some light scattered spots of foxing, primarily constrained to the edges, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo. Despite the nonattendance of their fourth member, Lennon's thoughtful and carefully penned inclusion of Harrison adds further charm to an already bold and felicitously inscribed album page.
