    Description

    Beatles "Please Please Me / From Me To You" Promo 45, Gem Mint (Vee-Jay VJ 581, 1964). White and turquoise label. The first issue of "Please Please Me" (VJ-498) didn't create a sensation when released in February 1963 backed with "Ask Me Why." This January 1964 release with "From Me To You" met with much greater success as Beatlemania came to the U.S. shores. A very desirable record in this prohibitively rare condition: Record GM-MT 10 / Label GM-MT 10. From the Stan Panenka Beatles Vinyl Collection.

    More Information:  Hey Jude, bought in 1970, it wasn't until 1990 with his purchase of a copy of the Decca single "My Bonnie" that Stan began seriously collecting high-end American Beatles vinyl. Since then, his collection has grown to colossal proportions, in terms of both quantity and quality, making it quite possibly the greatest collection of United States-pressed Beatles records ever known. A large part of what makes this collection so important are his condition standards, which are stringent even among high-end dealers. In most cases he's never bought an album that wasn't at least Near Mint, bringing a "just-left-the-pressing-plant" quality to great deal of the items in this incredible accumulation. As one of the preeminent experts in American Beatles records, Stan has written well-received price guides on Beatles vinyl, and is a walking treasure trove of information on the subject!

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
