Why's It Valuable?
Rare Beatles items are highly sought after by music memorabilia collectors.
In large part this could be due to The Beatles long lasting popularity (worldwide) and enormous fan base. The combination of lots of collectors seeking a scarce-supply of early Beatles memorabilia can drive prices sky high.
In March of 2013, a 1967 Sgt. Pepper's Album fetched $290,500
