   Here it is - the one you've been waiting for - a mint, unplayed original pressing of the 45 that launched it all: Elvis Presley's landmark 1954 debut record "That's All Right"/"Blue Moon of Kentucky" (Sun 209), from the personal collection of Sun Records Promotion Manager Cecil Scaife!  Cecil donated another copy from this very batch (Sam Phillips gave him a box of 25 copies back in the 1950's) to the Country Music Hall Of Fame for display.  We had the distinction of listing one of Cecil's copies back in 2006 and we are beyond honored to offer another one up to you now in 2010!  As you can see by the photos, this 45 comes out of its original shipping box (not included as part of this auction), is housed in its original brown stock paper sleeve, and is guaranteed original and unplayed!
  This 45 - being unplayed - is in mint condition. Its labels, which have the push marks caused by the equipment at Plastic Products (the pressing plant that manufactured Sun records at the time), are also in mint condition, with raw flecks still flaking off the spindle hole!  You couldn't have found a nicer copy if you'd walked into Poplar Tunes in July, 1954 to buy one hot off the press - unbelievable!
  To protect your investment, this 45 - as with all vinyl purchased at The Great Escape Online - will be placed in a new plastic outer sleeve prior to packing and shipping.  Furthermore, we will handle this rare gem with the utmost care - from imaging to packing (safely ensconced in a Bags Unlimited 7" mailing box - the industry standard for shipping 45's - with bubble wrap for extra protection and cushioning) and beyond - ensuring it arrives to you in the same condition it leaves us in . . . which is, of course, the same condition it left Plastic Products in back in 1954!  For extra security and peace of mind, we will be packing and shipping this record with utmost care to protect the value of your investment.
