DALLAS (AP) — A copy of The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album autographed by all four band members is set to be sold.
Bids for the 1967 album that goes up for auction Saturday have topped $120,000. Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said in the week leading up to the auction that the bidding had gone even higher than expected. Heritage originally estimated the album would go for around $30,000.
The Beatles signed the album on the gatefold above pictures of their heads.
The auction company’s consignment director, Garry Shrum, has said there’s no telling when an autograph of such quality will show up again and “people are responding to that.”
Bids started at $15,000 and include the buyer’s premium.
