I havea lot of Beatle and other '60's 45's, but not the sleeves. Are they only collectable with the sleeve? If the record itself is collectable, how much is the value reduced by not having the sleeve? Thank you!

Generally speaking, any prices you see in a price guide are for the actual record itself, not the sleeve. Sometimes a record came with a picture sleeve, but those have separate values. Many 45s just came with a plain sleeve or a company sleeve.

That being said, if you plan on selling them, it would help to have a sleeve of some sort to protect the record. Records without sleeves tend to get scratched and scuffed very easily.

The main thing is the condition of the record. If it's really beat up, it's practically worthless unless it's something really really rare. If your 45s have been without a sleeve for a long time, that doesn't bode well for their condition.

The 60s were a great time for 45s. If you're gonna get rid of them, give 'em a spin first if you can.

With the Beatles,in most cases,the picture sleeve is worth more than the record. Many people either destroyed or lost the picture sleeve. Also,the condition of the sleeve is very important.
