A super rare withdrawn White Stripes test pressing is currently on sale on eBay for over 10 thousand pounds.

According to the listing:

“This is the definative ‘holy grail’ for White Stripes / Jack White / Third Man & record collectors which has been documented in articles but very rarely seen or offered for sale as only a few copies were manufactured…This the only ever official White Stripes 10″vinyl single that has been pressed but never commercially released.

After a very few test pressing copies were produced the 10″ single release was then cancelled…This withdrawn UK test pressing stands firmly alongside the Quarrymen acetate, the Sex Pistols A&M single, Velvet Underground acetate as one of the most prized and sought after records from modern pop culture.”

He also notes it is not in mint condition with “a few very light hairlines” and “a very light pop on the B side at 2.12”.

This puts the record up there with the most expensive ever sold (if it, um, does sell) alongside Ringo Starr’s copy of The White Album and Wu Tang Clan’s singular copy of Once Upon a Time In Shaolin

The pressing features a live version of Ball & Biscuit on side A and There’s No Room For You Here from 2003’s Elephant.

As the listing promises, you can listen via YouTube below.
