The handwritten letter by Paul McCartney, dated 12 August 1960, inviting an unknown drummer to audition for The Beatles, was discovered folded-up inside a book, by an anonymous collector at a car boot sale in Bootle, Liverpool, England. It is expected to sell at auction for 7,000-9,000 pounds (11,050- 14,200 US dollars). (AP Photo/Kirsty Wigglesworth)
