MONKEES ULTRA - RARE SHEET/SLEEVE FOR 3RD U. S. UNRELEASED SINGLE


Item History and Pricing
Information:
Original Description:
You may be familiar with the story.  The Monkees third single was to be "She Hangs Out" (the Don Kirshner version) b/w a song on which the Monkees played, either "The Girl I Knew Somewhere" (version 1) or "All of Your Toys", which was apparently an agreement reached by all concerned (Columbia pictures, Kirshner and the Monkees).  However, Kirshner did not think either of these two songs were worthy of being on a single, and he had promised Neil Diamond the next single after "...I'm a Believer" reached #1.  So, Kirshner on his own issued "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You" (penned by Diamond) and "She Hangs Out" in Canada on the RCA label, and had picture sleeves printed for issue of this single in the U.S. (per Sandoval in his day-by-day Monkees book, page 92).  But the single gets quickly recalled in Canada, it never gets released in the U.S., and Kirshner ultimately gets fired.
I had never seen a picture of what the U.S. sleeve looked like, and I have not seen any details as to how many were printed (and I have been following the Monkees since 1966).  However, I recently purchased items that once belonged to the late Don Kirshner, and included was this item (which I had no idea about).  It is a sheet that certainly appears to be made to be cut and folded into the sleeve for the never-issued third single on Colgems.  It is the same picture used for the "Pleasant Valley Sunday" single, but has the 66-1003 catalog number (which follows the 66-1002 number for the "I'm a Believer" single) and has Colgems spelled out (as it is on the first two singles) rather than the logo used on the PVS single.
Could this be the only one in existence?  I don't know, but again, I have never even seen a picture of this sleeve in any Monkees book (and I have many), much less ever seen an actual or, like this, a sheet that could be made into an actual sleeve.  
Perhaps this was given to Kirshner for his approval prior to any printings (if indeed any more were printed).  I just don't know.
Anyway, here is a true collectible for that Monkees fan.  Free priority shipping!  And check my 100% feedback for legitimacy!  Good luck and thanks for looking!
BTW, those are little black dots, not holes, in the pictures.  Something to do with printing?       On Sep-01-19 at 09:41:36 PDT, seller added the following information:In answer to a couple of questions, the sheet is not in new condition - it is somewhat worn and handled.  However, there are no tears.  The dimensions are approximately 14 1/2" x 8 1/2" (but, as shown in the picture, the cutting is not straight).  Yes, it can be cut and glued so that it can be made into a nice-looking 7" x 7" picture sleeve (with no markings showing) if so desired.
Since the original posting, a couple of major Monkees collectors have told me that this is indeed a major find and to expect heavy bidding as the auction winds down.
