Album- VG+ (Light surface noise can be heard in spots mainly between songs/intro/soft passages. Side 1 has a couple small hairline surface scratches. Side 2 has a ugly light zig-zag surface scratch, but doesn't affect the sound (see photo 11). Overall this album sounds excellent, but with the scratch I'm grading it VG+. If you are a collector this isn't for you, but is for someone that wants to hear some great music without much surface noise). Sounds really good! Jacket- VG (Top corner has been bent leaving a good size crease. Couple other creases on front along the spine and 2 on the back towards the bottom corner. Small scuff mark on top edge on backside). Overall looks really good! Lyrics insert is in EX condition. Comes with a white generic inner sleeve. I will ship album in a new Mo-Fi anti-static inner sleeve.
Photos are of the actual item you will get. Any major flaws should be visible in photos. If you would like any photos not included please ask. I am not a professional grader, but each album has been played (spot tested) and cleaned. If anything, I under grade! Nothing like getting a record that is listed as Near Mint or EX to have deep scratches all over it and skips when played. I spend approx. 15 minutes listening to each album. When grading, my first priority is sound, then surface marks/scratches. If it sounds NM, but has several surface scratches that you can’t hear I’ll grade it EX. I will list this in my descriptions. Each jacket will be shipped in a new outer sleeve and each album in a new inner sleeve. All albums shipped per USPS Media Mail in a cardboard LP mailer outside of the jacket with cardboard on both sides for protection. Free shipping in the USA. (Contact me for shipping rates outside of the US). You will be responsible for any taxes. All albums have been kept in a smoke free environment. Please leave positive feedback after your album has arrived and gets your approval. If for any reason you are not satisfied please contact me to resolve any issues (partial refund) or a FREE money back return (you pay shipping). I will do my best to describe any flaws seen or heard when grading this album. Each album I list will be graded by Album, Jacket, and Inner Sleeve (if available, no description then the original is missing) in every listing with any flaws. I set my prices based off of what this album has sold for over the last couple of months in this condition and the current average asking prices. Quantity available plays factor into pricing also. You should find my prices to be very reasonably so please don’t send low ball offers. These will automatically be rejected so please don’t be offended if you get no counter offer back. Send me a message if you have any questions. I always try to take care of repeat customers and anyone buying multiple items. Thank you for looking and enjoy your music!
If you buy any album and see a second one for under $10 you are interested in, I will discount the “Buy It Now Price” for the under $10 albums. I MUST get a message from you before buying to adjust the price. Albums must be bought at the same time. Please don’t buy both then message me!
Here is how I grade:
MINT- To me, Mint is in perfect condition so it’s never been played or opened. I only have used vintage original albums that are 30+ years old so I will not list anything as Mint.
NEAR MINT-Looks and sounds like new. Near perfect record with at most a couple light surface scratches or scuffs with no crackling or skips when played. Inner sleeve may have a small crease on corner, no fading, very, very light wear on corner/edges, or no splits over a ½ inch. Jacket may have very light edge/corner ware, no fading, or ring wear.
EXCELLENT-Near perfect sounding record with very few light scratches or scuffs. May have very light crackling/surface noise when played between songs or intro. Inner sleeve may have small creases on corners, very light fading, very light wear on corner/edges, or very small spits, but overall in excellent condition. Jacket may have very limited markings or very light ring wear with corners/edges slightly scuffed.
VERY GOOD-Record shows some signs of wear with surface scuffs and light scratches, but surface noise can mainly be heard when playing in between songs, intros, or in soft spots. Inner sleeve has some creases, light tears, light ring wear, or have splits (some may have been taped). Jacket shows some wear, light fading, light ring wear, or small creases, but overall looks very good.
GOOD-Record plays just fine, but has some surface noise and scratches or is slightly warped. Inner sleeve has multiple creases, tears, ring wear, or splits on more than one side (some have been taped). Jacket is faded (but readable), may have larger scuff marks, ring wear, corners bent, creases, or some tearing.
FAIR/POOR-No albums will be sold in this condition. Only inner sleeve or cover may be in this condition.
