The price you find in the Rare Record Price Guide, however, is only a guide, and the true value of your original Beatles' record depends on its condition and rarity. One collector's sealed first press of the Beatles' "Yesterday and Today" sold at an auction for $38,800 because it was only sold in shops in limited areas for one day due its controversial cover art. Very early copies of "Revolver" are worth a lot more than later copies because they feature a different mix of "Tomorrow Never Knows." The value of your record can rocket if your record is signed by a member of the band. A rare copy of "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" was sold for $295,500 in 2013.

Your Beatles' record is potentially worth a lot more than its recommended value if you sell it at an auction rather than to a dealer. Popsikes.com, for example, shows original Beatles' records sold on eBay for much more than their stated value.
