John Lennon's personal copy of Yesterday And Today "Butcher Cover" may bring $200,000+
The album was given to Dave Morrell, a Beatles fan and collector, who was in a studio showing Lennon some of his memorabilia and bootleg material.


DALLAS, TX.- Possibly one of the world's rarest pre-production albums — John Lennon's personal copy of Yesterday And Today "Butcher Cover" Stereo Prototype – is expected to sell for as much as $200,000 in Heritage Auctions' Entertainment & Music Memorabilia Auction Nov. 11 in Dallas. Beatles collectors are well aware of this rare album, which comes directly from the Stan Panenka Beatles Vinyl Collection.

"The term "world class" is probably a bit over-used in describing collectibles, however, labeling this unique, rare, and desirable Beatles item as "World Class" is not hyperbole," said Garry Shrum, Director of Music Memorabilia at Heritage Auctions.

The album was given to Dave Morrell, a Beatles fan and collector, who was in a studio showing Lennon some of his memorabilia and bootleg material. Lennon essentially traded the album for a reel-to-reel tape of the Beatles tribute supergroup Yellow Matter Custard that Lennon desired. Before that, the album was displayed on the wall of his Dakota apartment.

Lennon filled the blank back of the cover with an original piece of art in black ink. It fills the cover and depicts a man with a shovel and his dog, both posed in front of a setting sun. Interestingly, he incorporated various tears, stains, and flaws into the picture. The album has his original artwork on the blank back and Morrell managed to obtain later two additional Beatle autographs: a bold black felt tip signature "Ringo Starr" and a blue ink signature "Paul McCartney", each across their respective images..

Included with this lot is a signed letters of authenticity from noted Beatle autograph experts Frank Caiazzo, Gary Hein and Perry Cox. With provenance from the Panenka Collection, the album gains "world-class status," Shrum said.

Although Panenka's first Beatles record was Hey Jude, bought in 1970, it wasn't until 1990 with his purchase of a copy of the Decca single My Bonnie that Panenka began seriously collecting high-end American Beatles vinyl. Since then, his collection has grown to colossal proportions, in terms of both quantity and quality, making it quite possibly the greatest collection of United States-pressed Beatles records ever known.
