The Beatles -- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Autographed Album

I didn't post a picture, because, well...we all know what that beautiful gatefold looks like when it's opened up to show the Fab Four. But wait, it gets better! This signed album has all of The Beatles signing in the yellow section, not over their black hair. That means they're all very legible. They all signed by their respective heads (not that that matters), and best of all...John Lennon and Paul McCartney, the ones sitting closest to the middle section that folds, don't sign over that folded part!

And how can you acquire this fine piece? Well, Heritage Auctions is starting the bidding on this classic album from 1967 -- the Summer of Love -- was starting the bids at $15,000. They expected it to reach $30,000, which is odd, since signed Beatles albums (with the signature on the front cover, as opposed to the back, where they often signed on the records that have been deemed authentic)...they've sold for over $50,000. And Pepper's is the Beatles album that most would prefer among all the albums (I still regret not buying the White Album signed by Lennon and McCartney on the front cover, with huge signatures, for $2,500 at a Beatles convention).

Dallas-based Heritage said that bidding has already reached $110,500, and they're thinking now it could pass the $150,000 mark. The consignment director, Garry Shrum, has been quoted as saying that an autograph of such quality will probably never show up again and "people are responding to that...it's taken on a life of its own."

Now, can you Beatles experts go find the photo and tell me if you think they're real? They all look great to me. It's only the George Harrison that I wonder about.

 Hi Steve, you know the idea for advertisement is not bad! The whole press in the world reported the deal with worldrecord and so on. The best an auction house can have. In my exhibition I'm proud to show genuine autographs (not a signed Sgt. Pepper) and TV stations and visitors are glad to see originals once in lifetime. After that originals hide again in a banksafe or another secured place.

True. I didn't think it was OK to raise suspicions that the album didn't really sell without some good evidence, that's all.

Tracks UK had a fully signed sgt pepper at auction in September. It didn't sell last year.

What did it reach?

Comment by Paul on February 11, 2015 at 5:48pm

It didn't sell for 150.000 thousand pounds, the pepper signed by 3 didn't sell either 15 thousand pounds on the 3.

 I LOVE MY PEPPER.

Where's yours? I don't recall seeing it. Am I having a senior moment?
