Lot 787: Very early vintage semiglossy 5.5 x 3.5 photo of the Beatles with Pete Best, signed and inscribed on the reverse in blue ballpoint, "Love to Doreen, from John Lennon, xxx," "To Doreen, love, Paul McCartney, xxx," "To Doreen-love from George (Harrison), xxxxxx," and "Lots of love-to Doreen, Pete Best, xxx." Crazing to the emulsion on the front, and soiling and typed notations to the reverse, otherwise fine condition. Best only played with the Beatles from August 1960 through August 1962, before being replaced by Ringo Starr. This is the first time we have encountered this wonderful youthful pose which is a truly exceptional example of the Beatles in one of their earliest incarnations.
