Beatles items on auction

Just got the new catalogue from "Gotta Have Rock And Roll" in the mail, with some outstanding and unique auction lots.
How about these ones:
  • John Lennon Fingerprinted and Signed Applicant Card for Permanent Residence in the U.S.A.
  • Paul McCartney "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" and "Honey Pie" Handwritten Working Lyrics
  • Original Diana Dors Wax Bust from the Sgt. Pepper Album
  • Beatles Signed "Please Please Me" Album
  • John Lennon and Paul McCartney Earliest Known Pair of Signatures, 1958
  • John Lennon Handwritten "The National Health Cow" Poem Draft
  • Paul McCartney and Stuart Sutcliffe Circa 1960/61 Handwritten Set List and Lyrics (!)
  • John Lennon’s Hand Annotated Polaroid Of Sean
  • John Lennon Owned and Worn "Working Class Hero" T-Shirt
  • Paul McCartney Owned and Used Leather Vanity Travel Case and scarf
  • Stuart Sutcliffe Original Watercolor Painting
  • Beatles "Abbey Road" Original Cover Art

Check out the official auction site to preview the items. The auction is held on October 6-15. About that McCartney/Sutcliffe collaboration, this is a  handwritten set list and lyrics in pencil. The writing is on a sheet of white paper. The top portion of the page is a set list along with the respective key for each song, handwritten by Stuart Sutcliffe. The bottom half of the page are lyrics for the Gene Vincent song, "Piece of Mind" handwritten by Paul McCartney.
Some unique snapshots are also part of the auction
