Picture sleeves for Ebony and Ivory, Crackerbox Palace, Venus And Mars, and Stand By Me.

These four black & white sleeves are all fakes, and all except Ebony and Ivory originated at the 1978 New York Beatlefest and were sold for around $2.00 each. Two collectors from Baltimore wanted some sleeves for their own collections to go with records that never had an official sleeve issued. Since one of them worked for a printer, they came up with their own designs, printed the slicks, and assembled them using a glue stick. They only made about twenty-five copies of each, including two Beatles titles (Twist and Shout and Hey Jude), and all sold out in about twenty minutes. Later on they made a Get Back sleeve. The Ebony and Ivory sleeve was made by someone else, perhaps in the mid 80s, and had had EMI/UK markings. It is not known what quantity of those was issued.
