QUICK BEFORE IT GOES BACK IN THE VAULTS FOR ANOTHER 30 YEARS OR SO! Here's a rare one! Unlike'hen's teeth', Unicorns, and Rocking Horse Manure!
A red plastic record rack made in the U. By Selcol (they also made them in orange plastic), the company that made some of the Beatle toy guitars. There is a (facsimile) GOLD decal with facsimile signatures attached to the rack on one side. Originally, a round Beatles sticker was adhered directly to the "spokes" of the side of the rack too (there is a facsimile of this one as well).
The only way to place the records in the rack was to rip right through the original Beatles logo sticker. Needless to say this Selcol Beatles 45 Record rack is difficult to find in any condition. The rack which can hold up to forty 45's is in VG+ condition.This example also has a perfect set of Gold stickers indicating the record numbers and that it is a Mini Disk Rack. It is of course stamped Selcol etc. In all my years of collecting Beatles stuff, and that's 57 years now! , I have only ever come across 12 of these Selcol Record racks; that's one every 5 years or so...... I CAN'T take it with me.... I'm just the present custodian...... You could be the next one. Just so that no-one misunderstands; the Beatles stickers shown in the photographs are NOT THE ORIGINAL ONES, they are very good facsimiles. The original stickers were torn off, over usage and years of wear etc.
If anyone has any material, advertising or otherwise about this item I would love to see a copy (for my personal archives). The end pieces are FANTASY advertising disc covers for the record racks. The photo of two of these Selcol Record Racks shows; one is RED, like mine, and the other is ORANGE.You can see the original stickers on both of the racks. Beatles New Beat, Beatles New Sound, Mersey Sound, New Beatles Jnr, Beatles Big 6 in red and silver and the Beatles Red Jet Electric......... 120-150,000 Beatles guitars were being made every month.
