Why's It Valuable?
Rare White Album's are highly sought after by Beatles memorabilia collectors.
In 2013 we reported on an extremely rare White Album (with a U.S. pressing number of A0000001) which sold for $35,000.
Because of The Beatles long lasting popularity (worldwide) there's a huge collector base, seeking a scarce-supply of early memorabilia. The demand for rare items can drive prices sky high.
As happened for the 1967 Sgt. Pepper's Album that fetched $290,500
