Perry Cox, a Beatles expert, said the signed album was “extraordinarily special.”

“I consider this to be on of the top two items of Beatles memorabilia I’ve ever seen, the other being a signed copy of ‘Meet the Beatles,” he said.

The bidder for the item was not identified, but the Associated Press reported it had been sold to someone in the Midwest.
