This is an auction for an ORIGINAL copy of the 1958 EP release of ELVIS PRESLEY in King Creole released in the USA.
The record itself (EPA-4319 dog on top) is in VERY GOOD+ / VERY GOOD condition a few marks/scratches ( 1 which can be felt on side 2) and retains some of it's natural sheen.
The centre labels have NO WRITING (see photos).
The THICK CARDBOARD picture sleeve is much sought after and was listed in a U.S guide book back in 2016 as $32 in the condition it is in now VERY GOOD+ for the sleeve alone!!!
This sleeve is 62 years old and is in reasonable condition for the age.
There are NO SPLITS ,RIPS or TEARS.
The only thing that stops this from grading even higher is some scuff marks/ringwear and age discolouration / spotting (see photos)
This is a really affordable collection filler until that MINT £60+ copy comes along.
The record is also stored in a separate paper sleeve to prevent anymore wear to this sleeve!!
Overall 2 years ago this was valued at $50(£32 approx) .I dont have a current price guide but i would say at least £34.
With a LOW START and NO RESERVE you might be able to grab yourself a bargain!!!
Please look at my other auctions for some more great Elvis USA picture sleeve lots.
I offer shipping discounts on multiple purchases!!(Please request total invoice when through bidding!)
