DALLAS, TX – Want an autographed copy of The Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band? Too bad. It just sold for a record-breaking $290,500, nearly ten times its estimated worth of $30k.

The album was signed by the Fab Four (Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison) in 1967, when the iconic record was released. It’s a UK parlophone copy with a high gloss cover and gatefold. Even the most educated music aficionados don’t know exactly what parlophone means, but we’re hoping the man who spent over a quarter-million bucks does!

The names of the buyer and seller are under wraps, but the auction house, Heritage Auctions based out in Dallas, says it was bought online over the weekend by someone who lives in the Midwest. Yea, that sounds like the only exciting thing happening in the Midwest right now.

So how’d the buyer pay for it? Our guess would be “with a little help from his friends.”
