Remember that infamous Beatles album where the Fab Four dressed as butchers? A rare copy of the album, once owned by John Lennon himself, is heading to auction in Dallas on November 11th.
The LP features hand-drawn sketches on the cover, as well as the signatures of three of the band’s members. It’s expected to draw at least $200,000.
An early copy of the record, it remains one of the few copies in existence. This copy was given to Beatles collector Dave Morrell in 1972 as a trade for memorabilia and bootleg material. Lennon signed the album, along with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
Due to the cover photo of the album being labeled rather jarring to fans, the album was pulled from the market and was never sold again after its second day on the market.
If you’re thinking of making a bid, or you just want to know more about the rare LP, you can see the lot on Heritage Auctions’ website.
