During the end of the band's run from 1969 to 1970, John became involved with Yoko Ono. This caused problems in the group because they were accustomed to only their own company. Below is a picture of the only known set to have the four Beatles and Yoko on the same item.
For these two years, the band was all but inaccessible to the public. It was virtually impossible to get anything signed by the Beatles as they were in the process of breaking up. Here are rare sets from 1969 (the day they shot the cover for Abbey Road).
As mentioned earlier, the Beatles were fond of the Apple Scruff girls and would sign for them. Only two known copies of Abbey Road signed by all four members have surfaced. By this time, their autographs were starting to change, especially John's signature.
In the past 10 years, a series of signed checks and documents have appeared. Full contracts from 1964 through 1969 are very difficult to obtain.
