Mike McCants has archived copies of old alldat.tle files (all norad
tracked objects, plus classified objects in Molczan file) on his ftp
site. These go back at least into 1997;

For specific objects you can now request old elsets from OIG. Your
limited to 10 requests per month for registered OIG users & 2 for
unregistered users. You can specify start & end dates for the elements
you want to retrieve;
