Iīm not sure, but could this Apollo sleeve be a candidate? Iīve never seen one before, I didnīt even know they existed. Unfortunately, itīs not mine, I just borrowed it online.

i have seen this sleeve, although it's not common it's not rare either, apollo was a fairly prolific label. the really rare 45 sleeves come from the small record companies who maybe only once or twice had printed sleeves made and the rest of the time uses plain ones, like the "westport" sleeve. and the stereo sleeves.

I've only seen a few and I live in NY.
I've got one but it's made out of such cheap paper and so dried out- it will crumble if I do anything with it.
That one looks in decent shape.

I know it's not rare, but I can't find any info or record label that matches this sleeve. If any one has a record label that matches any of these record companies I would be interested in obtaining them.

I'm not sure how rare it isn't but I've never seen one

Contact Ehrling at

He might have some idea
if not I'm sure he'd want a scan

Don't know how "rare" it is, but this past weekend I picked up a copy of "Tequila" by The Champs on Challenge and it was still in the original factory sleeve. It's definitely original to the record because the former owner (who'd been collecting records for over 50 years - no kidding!) documented the title, artist, and date released on the sleeve. Never had seen a Challenge sleeve before that and it was pretty neat.

Last weekend I "liberated" a Dearborn Records sleeve off of a Sunsetters 45 (fear not, RCG'ers - I slipped it over another record and paid for the record...I'm not THAT hard-up for a sleeve) to add some color to my Me & Dem Guys promo 45. Never saw this one before, either - is it "up there", value-wise?

Here in the Midwest, the Soma sleeve turns up on occasion - "scarce" but not rare. The Jewel / Paula / Ronn sleeve is a little more common - I see this every once in a while. I know someone who could tell me which labels got the Allied sleeve - again, it turns up because few people are sure which labels match it. I've only ever seen one Aladdin sleeve - that's a toughie. Another obscurity is New Phoenix out of Hartford, WI - only saw one of those, too (too bad the record was lame, otherwise I would've kept it), as was Mono Records also from Hartford (but that was mostly a polka label, so who cares).
I bought a brand new copy of Lovers Island by the Blue Jays on Milestone in 1970 and it was in a Allied sleeve, bought it in a record shop called Harrison radio and TV in greenwood (Part of seattle) They had brand new 45s for sale at the time, however they are no longer around, I think there is a Mc Donnals where it was located, bought many original 45s from that store from May 1970-1975.
