I assume that some of the common late 1940s or early 1950s 78's with boring music are worth nothing.

But are the original disc sleeves of value, say even $0.10 each?

I like these original sleeves with nice printing, and I assume I should buy the discs for $0.10 each if the sleeves are good.

Agree?

I can't think of any late period 78 sleeves that are unique enough to buy just for themselves. They pretty much always seem to be generic record company adverts.

Earlier ones, yes. Like the sleeves Columbia made for Paul Whiteman in the 1920's. Those by themeselves are probably worth more than most Paul Whiteman records alone, aside from ones like the ones he made with Bix.

The only 50's sleeves that come to my mind as being valuable are Sun records, it was a small label that did not sell much but launched people like Elvis, Cash and Carl Perkins.

Most of the "common" sleeves are not worth much, but there are some that will bring more than a few bucks. Off the top of my head: Edison needle cut, Edison long play, special sleeve for Let Us Not Forget, any early "race label" sleeves, but of course none of these are 40s or 50s.
