Beatle Memorabilia Still Astounds

Any doubt that Beatle memorabilia is still on the upswing probably disappeared with news that someone bid more than $55,000 for a letter Paul McCartney wrote to an unknown drummer inviting him to audition for a spot in what would become the Beatles.  The August, 1960 letter for a stick man to fill the role that eventually was awarded to Pete Best and later Ringo Starr was auctioned by Christie's Auction House in London on Tuesday (11/15). News of the considerable sum paid for a letter whose recipient can't be identified comes just days after reports that a Canadian dentist had laid out more than $30k to get possession of a  tooth that once resided in John Lennon's mouth (story).
