The ticket will go up along with a lot of items relating to The Fab Four, including a pair of John Lennon's iconic round sunglasses which are expected to sell for $10,330.

AceShowbiz - A parking ticket issued to The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is expected to fetch up to $1,940 (£1,500) at auction.

The ticket was issued on 25 April 1969 outside Apple records in London's Savile Row, and was kept by Starr and bandmate George Harrison's driver Alan Herring, who has now decided to sell off the rare piece of musical history.

It will go up amongst a lot of items relating to The Fab Four, including a pair of John Lennon's iconic round sunglasses, which the musician apparently told Herring to keep after he left them on the back seat of Starr's Mercedes in 1968.

The glasses, which have one lens and an arm detached, are expected to sell for $10,330 (£8,000) in The Beatles online sale at Sotheby's.

Other items in the sale include a cigarette lighter kept in the car, shirts worn by the band and one of Harrison's guitars, which is expected to fetch $77,460 (£60,000) in the auction, which runs from 6 to 13 December.
