John Lennon's personal copy of 'Butcher Cover' album just sold for $235k

John Lennon's personal -- and personalized -- copy of The Beatles "butcher cover" album has sold for $235,000.

According to Julien's Auctions, the LP, believed to be the only one with signatures by Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, was purchased by an American collector who wished to remain anonymous. John had displayed it on a wall of his New York apartment until trading it to Beatles collector and former Capitol Records promo man Dave Morrell in exchange for some memorabilia and bootleg items. Morrell, who also had Paul and Ringo sign it, auctioned it off in 2017 for $100,000. 

Auction house head Darren Julien tells NME, "The market is still developing, so we anticipate in the next five years this same record could bring $500,000-plus.

Another noteworthy item from Thursday's sale was a baseball signed by all four Beatles the night of their final concert at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. It went for $75,000.
