A Fantastic Christmas Present for the Beatles' Fan who thinks they have everything!
Here's the story: In December of 1967, a special Christmas party was
held at Capitol Records in Hollywood. The biggest selling album of 1967
was the Beatles "Sgt. Pepper". To commemorate that, Capitol took photos
of many of the sales reps and executives who helped make the LP the
biggest seller of the year. They took those photos and created a new
cover slick for the "Sgt. Pepper" LP using the sales reps and executives
photos in place of the Beatles and some of the other celebrities on the
cover. A special batch of 100 or less of these new covers were run on
normal "Sgt. Pepper" Stereo albums, sealed up and handed out to the
party goers at that Christmas Party. You had to work at Capitol Records
as a salesman or executive in 1967 in order to be invited to the party
and given one of these special "Sgt. Pepper" albums. They were never,
ever sold in stores or made available to the public.
The first one came to light in the 1980's when it was found in Los
Angeles and sold to Rockaway Records in Los Angeles, who in turn sold it
to one of their clients. That copy was in pretty wrecked condition but
it told the Beatles collecting community that it existed and the hunt
was on. Since the 1980's two other copies have surfaced and have been
sold. One of those two was also in wrecked condition and one was about VG+.
I got this copy years ago as part of a collection I bought from a former
Capitol Records salesman. THIS COPY IS STILL SEALED in the original 1967
shrink wrap and in PERFECT CONDITION. There is no finer copy anywhere.
It is a true Museum piece and would be the cornerstone of any Beatles
collection. NO Beatles collection can ever be complete without this one.
It SHOULD be in a Beatles Museum, if and when one is ever put together.
I have no intention on selling this cheap. It is my belief that record
prices are still in their infancy when compared to other Pop Culture
collectibles such as Comic Books, Baseball Cards, Movie Posters etc.
Prices for records are certainly rising (at least for the great
collectible ones!) and no matter what happens, in the future, a record
like this will be worth more than it will sell for today. Remember when
Superman # 1 could be had for $500,000.00??? Now they are $2million.
I have been collecting and dealing in rare records for over 45 years.
The top of the line Beatles records, in top of the line condition, have
been going up each and every year. This special "Sgt. Pepper" LP is
certainly one of the all time rarest of all Beatles LP's. This is the
ONLY KNOWN STILL SEALED ORIGINAL COPY. It is PERFECT MINT, with not one
single flaw. There is a small drill hole in the cover, put there by
Capitol so that it could not be sold in stores.
On November 3rd, 2011, THE GUARDIAN newspaper in London ran a story
about this record. They called it "the world's most valuable" record and
estimated the value at that time to be SEVENTY THOUSAND POUNDS. There
have been NO sales of any copy since the story in the GUARDIAN in 2011.
Ringo Starr sold his personal copy of The Beatles White Album # 00001 a
couple years ago at sale and it brought over $700,000.00.
This is your chance to own this outstanding part of Beatles history. Who
will step forward and BUY IT NOW??? I am willing to hand deliver the
record to the buyer, whomever and where ever they may be, at my expense.
