The Beatles album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, was sold for $290,500 to an anonymous bidder at a Dallas auction on Saturday, March 30, 2013. The $290,500 album was one of several items on sale at the Heritage Auctions that also include other entertainment and music memorabilia.
All four members of the Beatles band had an autographed on the rare 1967 copy of the album. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr signed the album above their image.
Prior to the sale, Heritage Auctions listed the memorabilia at $30,000.
A letter of authenticity was published at the Heritage Auctions official website to prove that iconic album was really issued in 1967, the same year the record was released.
Perry Cox, a Beatles expert described the 1967 album as “extraordinarily special.” According to him,
I consider this to be one of the top two items of Beatles memorabilia I’ve ever seen — the other being a signed copy of ‘Meet the Beatles’ [the band’s second album released in the U.S.].
