The Beatles - Miniature Flip your Wig Game & Albums - Factory Sealed
The iconic Flip Your Wig game reproduced in a miniature and sealed. The box measures 2" x 1 1/8" and the outside of the box looks very much like the 1964 Milton Bradley game. The game is sealed but according to the one I purchase it from the game includes a miniature reproduction of the game board.
This lot of items also includes a miniature version of the Butcher Cover album poster that was sent to record shops. It measures 2 1/8" x 1 3/4". And finally, there are 8 miniature albums: (2) Hard Day's Night, Sgt. Pepper's, Beatles '65, the White Album, Something New, the Christmas Album, and Yesterday and Today. These albums are all sealed, but reportedly include miniature albums and inserts as described below by the person we purchased these items from many years ago.
The Sgt. Pepper's album includes a replica of the original inner sleeve and cutouts that came with the original album. The White Album includes the 4 photos of The Beatles and the original poster that came with the album. This album is the "white vinyl" version that was released as a limited collector's edition. The "Yesterday and Today" (aka the Butcher Cover Album) is what's commonly known as the "3rd state". This means that the original cover was covered over by a paste-over due to the controversy surrounding the original. If you look closely at this little miniature you can see (on the right-hand side) the black v-neck shirt that Ringo is wearing underneath on the original cover. This is one of the tests that people use to authenticate whether or not they have an original butcher cover. When people purchase a Butcher Cover they usually hire a professional to "peel" the paste-over label so they don't destroy the original cover. On this little miniature, you can actually peel this cover off yourself (do it very carefully, pulling slowly from one corner ... you might need a small flat sharp object like an Exacto knife to get it started). If you choose to peel off the paste-over you will find your original Butcher Cover underneath !! This album is the "mono" version of the Yesterday and Today album. The kind of glue used to apply the paste-over is a somewhat temporary type that allows you to carefully peel off the paste-over and re-apply it if you like. You should be able to do this a few times before the adhesive is no longer pliable and the paste-over cannot be re-applied. If you peel it carefully enough you should be able to remove the paste-over with no damage to the original cover, but you must do it slowly and carefully. It is advised that for best results that you use a pair fo tweezers when removing and replacing the little record albums and record sleeves
