Ringo is looking to part with some 1,300 items between now and early December, through Julien’s auction house. Beatle’s treasures include Ringo’s copy of the UK’s first pressing of the White Album, numbered “No. 0000001.”
“It has been widely known among collectors that the four members of the Beatles kept numbers 1 through 4, but it was not commonly known that Starr was given the No.0000001 album,” says the posting on Julien’s website. “Ringo tarr has stated that he kept this album in a bank vault in London for over 35 years.”
the current bid for the White Album copy is $20,000.

A Beatles Yellow Submarine Jukebox that is one of only 100 built. The Apple authorized Rock-Ola jukebox has a 100 CD capacity and has a starting bid of $7,500.

An upholstered chair featuring cover art from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band has a starting bid of $150.

There’s also a press archive of vintage press clippings, newspapers, and magazines. “The press archive was compiled and gathered in this trunk by Ringo’s mother Elsie Starkey as she witnessed the global spread of Beatlemania,” says the description on the auction listing. The starting bid on this is $1,000.
All of Ringo’s auctions are open for bidding now on, and end December 3rd at 10am, Pacific Time. Proceeds from the auctions will go towards The Lotus Foundation, a charity that was founded by Ringo and his wife, Barbara Bach.
