From Me To You - Fascinating business cards chart the earliest days of the Fab Four.<br />
<br />
Meet The Beatles - Three business cards that chart the evolution of the Beatles from fledgling teenagers have emerged for sale for £6,000.<br />
<br />
The first card dates to 1957 when John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison were in a band called The Quarry Men along with Lennon's best mate Pete Shotton.<br />
<br />
They started off as a Country, Western, Rock 'n' Roll and Skiffle act and had the cards professionally made while they looked for gigs in their native Liverpool.<br />
<br />
By the time The Quarry Men had their second set of business cards printed in 1958 they had dropped the Country  Western element to their act.<br />
<br />
And a third card printed in 1960 shows how the band had changed their name The Beatles and had a new manager, Alun Williams.
