1960 45 RPM record of Abbott and Costello's classic baseball routine, "Who's on First," complete with its exceedingly rare paper sleeve. The sleeve cover features an illustration of "The Brooklyn Bum" by famed cartoonist Willard Mullin, who asks the question "Who's on Foist." As noted in print on the sleeve, this issue, by Campbell Records, represents the first time that Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First" routine was issued on a 45 RPM record. The sleeve ( 7 x 7 inches) remains in Excellent to Mint condition and the record is in Mint condition (never played). Together with three recordings (two 45 RPM records and one 78 RPM record) of the Wabash Cannon Ball as sung by Dizzy Dean and his Country Cousins (each Nr-Mt to Mt and housed in generic brown-paper sleeves). Total: 4 records. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
