Rare 1962 Cavern Club membership card booklet, 2.5 x 3.75, eight pages, signed and inscribed inside in black ballpoint, “Love to Betty, from John Lennon, xxxx,” and in blue ballpoint, “Love to Betty, from Paul, xxx,” “To Betty, love from George Harrison, xxxxxx,” and “Love to Betty, from Pete Best, xxx.” Personal information has been filled out inside the front cover by the owner, Betty Griffiths, with a date of February 2, 1962. In very good condition, with heavy rubbing and soiling to covers, a few creases to interior pages, and a bit of haloing to Harrison’s signature. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks as well as a letter of provenance from Betty Griffith’s niece, stating that her aunt had frequented Cavern Club during the 1960s. An exceptionally early piece of great rarity, as the Beatles replaced Best with Ringo Starr on August 16, 1962. The Beatles played their first Cavern Club show on February 9, 1961, where they achieved great local popularity and met Brian Epstein—a crucial step in launching the band into international fame. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL.
