Back to The most valuable records

Ringo Starr’s personal copy of the Beatles’ ‘The White Album’, numbered No.0000001, sold for a world record $790,000 in 2015 at the Julien’s Live auction of instruments and items from Starr and wife Barbara Bach’s estate. Starr’s ‘White Album’ carried a pre-auction estimate of $40,000 to $60,000, a number that was easily shattered during bidding.
The copies of ‘The White Album’ were numbered in sequence, ensuring that whoever purchased Starr’s copy would have the first printing produced of the album.
