The lowest-numbered sleeve from the Beatles' White Album will star in Heritage Auctions' August 10 Entertainment and Music Memorabilia Signature Auction in Dallas. The sleeve is numbered A0000001 and is one of around two dozen such-numbered copies given out as early promotional items to the Beatles themselves and top Capitol Records executives. It is expected to sell for more than $20,000.
The lot follows Heritage's December 2012 sale of the White Album A0000023 for $13,750. The sleeve has been graded MT10, making it the finest possible. Included is the original poster and four individual photographs, along with a set of two EX7-graded records, which are not original to the album.
