    Description

    Beatles "Please Please Me / From Me To You" US 45 With Picture Sleeve and Rare VJ Mailer (Vee-Jay 581, 1964). This is the third single released on the VJ label, this rare picture for "Please Please Me" is backed with another hit from early 1964, "From Me To You." In addition to this, it's very hard to find this white sleeve in such pristine condition. Due to the demand for airplay at the beginning of Beatlemania, VJ Records sent out many copies to radio stations and reviewers for magazines. Here we have an un-used VJ mailer which we have never offered before at auction. Also note this is the rare black label/silver print version of the disc, with Vee Jay Records in brackets in an original Vee Jay company sleeve. Condition: MT 9/ EX 7.5/ Mailer EX 7, with a postage stamp stain where stamp was removed. From The Stan Panenka Beatles Vinyl Collection.

    More Information:

    Possessing a Beatles record collection so astounding we've never seen its equal, Stan Panenka is a name known by virtually every serious Beatles collector. Though his first Beatles record was 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!
