“The White Album Auction”
On the 22nd November 2013 online bidding will begin at TracksAuction.com on the first fully signed copy of ‘The Beatles’ LP (the ‘White Album’) ever to be publicly auctioned. This autographed copy of the White Album is the first ever to surface. The album was originally taken by a South London man from his brother in lieu of a £100 debt in the seventies. It was then stored away in a radiogram in the lounge of a semi-detached house in South London for the last forty plus years, totally unbeknown to the owner that the signatures were genuine. The album was forgotten about until recently when a signed copy of Sgt. Pepper fetched $290,000 in an online U.S.A. auction. This prompted the owner of the album to contact TracksAuction.com to authenticate the signatures and value the album. It is expected that this fabulous autographed copy of what many consider to be The Beatles greatest work could realise over £100k when auctioned. Genuine signed copies of The Beatles post-1967 albums are virtually non-existent. Only two autographed copies of The White Album are known to exist and only 2 signed copies of the Abbey Road LP have surfaced. A signed copy of the group’s final album, Let It Be, has never been seen.
