A completely average, unsigned copy of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band definitely did NOT sell at auction for a crap load of money: $290,500 to NOT be exact. Via The Hollywood Reporter:
A rare, signed copy of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band has brought $290,500 at auction, shattering the previous record for such an item.
The item signed by all four members of the legendary band was purchased Saturday by an unnamed buyer from the Midwest. An anonymous seller parted with the album through the Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, which ahead of the bidding estimated the album would sell for $30,000.
See, we can do this April Fool’s thing, too.
