Offered is one of the coolest lots we have ever offered: nine Mint condition file copies of Elvis Presley's 45 RPM singles Sun Records labels. All but one side of Sun 215 are here. They include: 1954 Sun 209 “That’s All Right" and "Blue Moon of Kentucky”; 1954 Sun 210 “Good Rockin’ Tonight" and "I Don’t Care If The Sun Don’t Shine”; 1955 Sun 215 “Milkcow Blues Boogie”; 1955 Sun 217 “Baby Let’s Play House" and "I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone”; and 1955 Sun 223 “Mystery Train" and "I Forgot To Remember To Forget.”

This "file copy" labels emanate from the estate of Marion Keisker--they were purchased, along with the previous lot, by an advanced Elvis collector in Memphis many years ago. Nearly perfectly well-preserved, the labels sat safely in Marion's files until now. Marion Keisker, of course, is the office manager of The Memphis Recording Service and Sun Records for Sam Phillips in the 1950s. She was the very woman who was present the day in 1953 that a young singer named Elvis Presley walked into the Memphis Recording Service and recorded his first song. 

At first glance, the labels appear to be for the Sun 78 versions, with the smaller hole in the center. But the Sun 78s had different artwork than the offered group. The larger 45 RPM hole would be achieved during the record production process. They each measure 3 5/8 inches in diameter and present in stunning MINT condition.
