A sheet of paper containing the autographs of a temporary and long-forgotten line-up of the Beatles has sold for over £2,000.<br />
<br />
The unusual piece of memorabilia dates back to 1964 when the band, at the height of Beatlemania, were on tour in Hong Kong.<br />
<br />
Shortly before leaving for Asia, Ringo Star was struck down and hospitalised with tonsillitis, leaving him unable to perform.<br />
<br />
He was replaced on the drums by Londoner Jimmie Nicol who was given a mop-top haircut and temporarily became a member of the Fab Four.<br />
<br />
The signed sheet, and a photo of the Beatles fan who got the signatures posing next to John Lennon, went under the hammer with Chiswick Auctions in west London.
