Hi. Does anyone know when was the latest year that Elvis records would have been sealed in loose baggies? I have seem them as late as 1962 but does anyone know when the last year may have been? Thanks,

I'm thinking it had to be around 1964. I started buying LP's in mass in 1965 and I can remember some of the older stock was in loose plastic but the new stuff was shrink wrapped.

That makes sense. Most record companies did not use shrink wrap until the middle of 1964.

Many copies of The Christmas Album in 1957 came sealed in a loose baggie with the gold gift sticker attached.
That's the earliest I know of.

I see now that you were actually referring to the end of the loose baggies and the transition to modern shrink wrap. Don't mind me.
