Signed Beatles album fetches $290,500

WENN

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.

Find: Monroe's '7 Year Itch' dress goes for millions

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."

Here's what I've got for sale:  Original 1966 Cigar still in its plastic wrap from Nantasket Beach in Hull, Massachusetts.  Also, my Original Woodstock 3-day tickets which never was collected at the gate.  How about this?  Original 1967 Red Sox - Cards World Series game 6 ticket played at Fenway.  Make me an offer I can't refuse.  I can guarantee that none of these items will cost you as much as the Beatles Sgt. Pepper Album @ 290K

It's worth what anyone was willing to pay for the album!  If money was no object, I'd like to own it.
