From The Auction: RARE 45 r.p.m. Picture Sleeves!!! Would you like to travel back in time about 50 years and collect rock and roll picture sleeves in brand NEW condition? Sure you would! Well, today's the day! I'm selling off my private collection of rare items!

THIS AUCTION is for a scarce Rolling STONES sleeve in NM condition: She's a Rainbow // 2000 Light Years from Home
Back in the 1950's, a San Francisco juke box dealership bought from one to twenty copies of all the hit records. They stocked individual juke boxes with these records, custom-picked by customers who rented the individual juke boxes for private dances-------filled with their favorite hit records of the day! Let's have a party!

When plain record sleeves (with their 4-inch holes) held a record, the juke box dealer could hold a stack of 45's on his thumb. But sleeves with photos didn't have holes, and they couldn't be stacked on his thumb! So this dealer REMOVED the illustrated picture sleeves and stacked them in the corner of the room, and put the records in heavy-paper green sleeves, and that problem was solved!

Then, in 1974, the juke box dealer let me into his stock room to buy stuff. The 45 rpm records were fine-to-mint, neatly stored on shelves, alphabetically labeled, and $1 each! Even being a starving college student, I bought over 100 records, the big Find-of-the-Day being Elvis' "That's All Right" on the SUN label......for just $1!!! Yes, I still have it to this day!

And over in the corner of the room were UNUSED 45 rpm Picture Sleeves, stacked all the way to the ceiling!!! Many were pop standards (Frank Sinatra, etc) but about 10% of them were in the category of Rock 'N Roll. So I bought them!

Here's a special treat for you Elvis Costello fans - an auction of 49 EC singles that went for $200!
