Spare change? Here’s an ultra-rare pressing of The Beatles’ White Album you can burn it on

Crack out the wallets, this will cause some damage. An original UK mono pressing of The Beatles’ 1968 self-titled LP (The White Album) has appeared on eBay.

It’s attracting a whopper price of  $2,599.99 US due to the collectibles included in the sale as well as its sub-500 pressing number.

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.
