Spend some green on something white


People collect some crazy things, don't they?

Rutherford Chang collects ONLY original pressings of The Beatles self-titled LP (the White Album).  Not records, or Beatles records, but 1st editions of a single album.  That's a crazily specific collection, but I love it.  So far he has almost 700 copies and some of them, like the above, are pretty. Since the first pressings were numbered he even has them all sorted by serial number.  It must be part of my collector nature because I can totally get behind this (not to mention that the White Album is pretty great). There were around three million copies of the 1st edition pressed so they are plentiful enough that you can grab them routinely for under $20, not a bad place to start if you're looking to join this particular little "crazy collector" mental health club.
