47 years to the day of its debut, comes word the first ever copy of the Beatles ‘White Album’ is about to go to auction.
Each came with its own serial number stamped on the cover.
Number 1 will be sold at Julien’s of Beverly Hills, which specializes in celebrity memorabilia December 4.
It belongs to Ringo and is expected to fetch up to $60,000.
The first four pressings of the LP belonged to the Beatles.
It was always believed No 1 belonged to John Lennon, who Paul McCartney once claimed ”shouted loudest” for it.
Turns out though Ringo Starr had it all this time and kept it locked away in a bank vault for over 35 years.
The copy of the White Album is one of many items he’s auctioning off.
All proceeds will go to the Lotus Foundation, founded by Ringo and wife Barbara Bach, to ”fund, support, participate in and promote charitable projects aimed at advancing social welfare in diverse areas.”
