Default Signed Sgt Pepper Gnome - Up for Sale

A cardboard garden gnome from the cover of the Beatles' album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" will hit the auction block on 18th April as part of Heritage Auctions' entertainment and music memorabilia sale. The prop was signed by all four band members following pop artist and designer Peter Blake's album cover photo shoot.

Consignment director Dean Harmeyer calls the figure "a true rarity and a cornerstone piece of any Beatles collection." On the cover, the cardboard gnome sits just to the right of George Harrison's leg.

The gnome was kept as a momento by an assistant to photographer Michael Cooper when the shoot wrapped on March 30, 1967. The item has a buyers premium of $17,500 and a current online bid of $14,000 (online bidding began March 30 and will culminate in a live auction that will run April 18-19). It is expected to hammer for as much as $25,000.
