Want to get your mitts on a bona fide piece of Beatles memorabilia? An ultra-rare copy of their White Album has appeared on eBay, ready for the highest bidder.
For quite some time, Ringo Starr’s #0000001 copy of The Beatles was famously the most expensive vinyl record ever sold, copping a price tag of £730,876 at an auction. Unfortunately that title was stolen last year when recently convicted ratbag Martin Shkreli bought the only known copy of Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon A Time In Shaolin.
Find all the juicy details, via the eBay listing, below:
- The original 1968 first issue, fully laminated top opening, Mono gatefold sleeve in VG+ condition.
- Two original UK Mono first issue (No EMI Text) vinyl Lps both in VG+ condition.
- Four Original, full color glossy photographs, one of each Beatle+ Original photo spacer.
- Original, large format, double sided lyric poster printed by Garrod and Lofthouse.
- Two original matt black inner sleeves in excellent condition (minor edge tear on the top and around center circle.)
- As a bonus, I will include the signed statement from the seller I purchased this from back in May of 2010 that states they were the second owner of this release, I am third and you would be the fourth.
- Pictures from the original auction I had requested which the seller kindly provided as well.
