John Lennon’s Personal Copy Of Rare Beatles Record Set For Auction

In 1971 John Lennon traded a rare, autographed copy of The Beatles Yesterday And Today compilation record for the infamous Yellow Matter Custard bootleg, a fan-taped reel-to-reel collection of early-Beatles radio performances that had never been commercially released. Now, Lennon’s personal copy of Yesterday And Today is expected to fetch nearly a quarter-million dollars at auction.
