    Elvis Presley "This Is His Life" Rare Comic Panels Picture Sleeve RCA (1956). That it was once reported to have enclosed the single "Mystery Train" is apropos, because it's currently a mystery exactly how this sleeve was used! Noted Elvis authority Jerry Osborne mentions in the 2006 edition of Rockin' Records that he had for years believed the sleeve was associated with "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You". More recently, it's become a little more cloudy, with reports that other records had come in the sleeve. RCA used similar "Life" promo sleeves for other artists, and since "Mystery Train" was Elvis' first RCA release, it makes sense that the sleeve would have accompanied that record. Osborne suggests that other Elvis releases in 1956 might have also come in the sleeve. One thing is for sure - this is a rare item that our experts have heard of, but not previously seen before. There is a small amount of whiteout on the front (the back is blank), but this is still a fine specimen of a real scarcity! Condition: EX 7.

    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!
