 Mr. Ringwald said ....."or was
acetate the hard material that most 78s were made out of?"

No - 78s were pressed into was shellac of various grades.
Most LPs are - I think - acetate or a mix of it. The quality and flexibility

Most flexible records of the type that the Beatles fan club put out -
appeared to be some sort of soft coating like cellophane over a card base.
