This a very rare Bob Dylan promo item. To introduce his the new single from his second album in 1963, Columbia issued a special picture sleeve that compared the importance of this single to the movie "Rebel Without a Cause." This single is "Blowin in the Wind". The song that changed both folk and popular music forever. And put Dylan on the map. These were only sent out to special places to introduce Dylan to the media. Very few were made, and very few survived. Problem was this sleeve was printed on very thin paper, and even the glue that was used cause stain marks in the sleeve all these years later. There are minor creases, and some other stain markings. Overall the sleeve is only Good, but considering it is HIGHLY unlikely that any survived in VG+ shape or better, that is saying a lot. The original promo 45 wa gently cared for and is VG+/VG++ shape. A piece of popular music history for certain, and one of the rarest Dylan items ever made.
