Early and complete band-signed promo card with Pete Best

Vintage circa early 1962 promo card photo of the Beatles, 5.5 x 3.5, featuring a studio pose of the band clad in matching suits and sitting in a semi-circle, signed and inscribed on the reverse in black ballpoint, “To Jean, love Paul McCartney xxx,” “Love to Jean from Pete Best xxx,” “Love to Jean from John Lennon xxx,” and “Jean, George Harrison xxx.” In fine condition, with surface impressions to image from the crisp, bold signatures on reverse. Accompanied by letters of authenticity from noted Beatles experts Frank Caiazzo and Perry Cox. Caiazzo states that this image is from “a photo session in late March of 1962, making this one of the earliest promo cards ever issued by the Beatles.” Best would be replaced in August of 1962 by drummer Ringo Starr, making this a rare and especially desirable lineup. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
