You can have this ultra-rare Beatles record if you have the cash

beatlesauctionA rare 10-inch Beatles record that has been sitting in an attic for over 50 years will be going up for auction next month and can be yours, provided you have a five-figure sum to spare.

The 1962 record, which contains the songs “Till There Was You” and “Hello Little Girl” and has manager Brian Epstein’s handwriting on it, was sitting in the attic of Gerry and the Pacemakers keyboardist Les Maguire. It will be going up for auction on March 22.

“I’ve never been a big fan of memorabilia, but people seem to like it,” Maguire said to the BBC. “It’s no good to me so I’ve given it to my granddaughter, who is hoping to buy a house after passing her accountancy exams. I hope it goes for a good price.”

That price will depend on how much money collectors are willing to shell out, but it reportedly is expected to get at least $14,000.

“A conservative estimate is that the 78 RPM record – the first Beatles disc to be cut before the band broke through into the national charts in late 1962 – will fetch upwards of £10,000 when it is auctioned, although it is such a rare item it is difficult to predict what the sale price will be,” the BBC reports.

The auction will be run by Omega Auctions in the UK. The auction will be broadcast online, and people from around the world will be able to make bids. Click here for more.
