First-Ever Copy of Beatles' White Album Is Up For Sale

The Beatles White Album might be the best album of all time. I think it's up there. If you're one of those who thinks the Beatles were overrated, well, stop reading this right now because you are wrong and I don't know what to tell you.

This item up for auction is a true piece of rock and roll history. It is literally the first copy of the White Album ever pressed. It's no. 0000001, and was given to Ringo Starr when it came off the presses. Copies 0000002-0000004 were given to the other band members. But this one is the first, the actual first copy of one of the best rock albums of all time. It was pressed from the brand-new masters and imediately stored in a bank vault, where it rested until just recently.

Because it was in a vault, it's in perfect condition. Nothing is faded, torn or worn. In short, this is a vital piece of music history, and someone is going to own it. The starting bid is $20,000, and the auction house estimates it will rake in between $40,000 and $60,000 once the auction ends. All proceeds go to benefit the charity Lotus Foundation.

Yeah, it's expensive. But if you've got the money, and you love the Beatles, how can you pass this up?
