Supremely rare 1956 ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ paper sleeve

Extremely scarce temporary paper record sleeve for Presley’s ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ 1956 extended play record (EPA 747). Lightweight sleeve measures 7.5 x 7.5 with “Blue Suede Shoes by Elvis Presley,” printed along the upper portion, with the other three songs included on the record listed below, and the RCA logo along the bottom. Sleeve is matted and framed with a copy of the album and its later cardboard sleeve, featuring a great image of Elvis performing, to an overall size of 13.5 x 31.5. In very good to fine condition, with light overall toning (a bit heavier to edges), a couple of trivial edge tears, and expected light creases and album impression. As Presley’s career began to take off in 1956, RCA recognized the importance of getting Elvis’s records into the hands of his fans. Instead of waiting for the finalized cardboard cover, the company hastily issued these EPs in temporary paper sleeves to meet the frenzied demand for his music. While the cardboard sleeves and vinyl records are quite common, most of these temporary sleeves did not survive due to their fragile nature, and have become highly sought-after by collectors. Oversized. RR Auction COA.
