Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the numbered, limited edition box set reissue of the 1968 album Maybe Tomorrow by the Iveys.
This box set, issued by EMF Records in 1987, includes a sealed copy of the album and a four-color T-shirt (see photo for example.)
About this copy: The copy offered for sale is the box set version of the 1987 EMF release, still sealed, and numbered #28/50, though we have it on good authority that the number of box sets that were manufactured were actually less than 50, and perhaps half that, at most.
This copy is still sealed and the album is presumably new and unplayed. The wrap is fully intact except for a couple of very small tears near the lower right hand corner. There is a bit of rippling on the back cover of the box; this appears to have happened at the factory.
A very rare item that hasn’t been offered for sale anywhere in a long, long time. We haven’t seen one of these for sale anywhere since the item was first released in 1987.
Background: Original copies of the first album by the Iveys, (later to be renamed Badfinger) Maybe Tomorrow, are among the most collectible records ever issued by the Beatles’ Apple label. Originally intended for worldwide release, the album was ultimately issued only in Germany, Italy, and Japan. Copies from all of those countries are rare, and the album rarely turns up for sale.
The album returned to the market in 1987 as an unauthorized reissue by EMF Records, pressed on high-quality virgin vinyl (though mastered from a vinyl source). While regular copies of that reissue turn up from time to time, few collectors are aware that there was also a limited edition numbered box set of that reissue, containing a sealed copy of the regular LP plus a four-color T-shirt depicting the album cover.
