The White Stripes rare single sold for $12.700
A rare White Stripes ’98 single was sold for $12.700 at auction earlier this week. 7″ vinyl went to a private collector. It was the first example out of 15 copies released 14 years ago. Jack White and Italy Records owner David Buick created single artwork themselves. It’s the second single in The White Stripes history, and contains Lafayette Blues and Sugar Tasted So Good.
The single costed only $6 when it was released in 1998. Speaking about the record, Jack White said: ”I remember me and a friend were talking, ‘Aw that’s too much! No-one’s gonna buy it at the Gold Dollar for six dollars.’ Hahaha! Then we went in to sell them and you can’t pick! You had to buy the first one, and there was a ton of people standing around waiting for someone to buy the first one, because they didn’t want the first one. They wanted the 10th one.”
