A signed copy of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album has smashed estimates by pulling in $290,500 at an auction.
The record, autographed by every member of the Fab Four, stunned experts by exceeding its expected price of $110,000 in pre-sale bidding a week before the auction in Texas, and it finally sold on Saturday for nearly 10 times its initial $30,000 estimate.
The album was sold to an anonymous buyer during the Heritage Auctions event in Dallas. The previous record for a signed Beatles album cover was set at $150,000 which was paid for a copy of "Meet the Beatles."
