If there’s one thing die-hard fans of The Beatles love more than afternoon tea and cheering for Liverpool FC (probably), it’s collecting rare memorabilia that showcases their dedication to the legendary band.
Now, for a cool $200,000 you can own a copy of the ‘most rare’ Beatles album, once owned by John Lennon himself.
‘Yesterday and Today’ features an iconic snap of the mop haired legends dressed as butchers (teen hearts squirmed for this back in the day), with hand drawing from John scrawled across the inner booklet to top things off.

“This piece is rare because one it’s the butcher cover that was withdrawn and never sold on the market after the second day. It’s John Lennon’s personal copy, it’s a prototype that had a blank back, which John did artwork on the back of.”
If you’ve got the dosh, go for it. Mortgage your house, sell your car, do it for John. So, if you’re keen, head on over to Just Collecting to cop yourself the piece of music history.
