CONDITION & DESCRIPTION:
BOB SEGER STRANGER IN TOWN V=VG J=VG
All of the grading is done by visual inspection. I pack each record with care and attention to detail to ensure safe shipping and handling. All records are shipped outside of the jackets to prevent seam splits unless they are sealed. Please remember that your listening experience will vary tremendously if you use a top notch player versus a budget player. Also all records should be cleaned prior to use. Some records may in need of a good bath! Some records may not have sleeves. I will ship these in a new sleeve. I want for you to be happy with your purchase so if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to send me a message BEFORE bidding/purchasing.
As I ship media mail your purchase is not insured. I use industry standard methods to ship. Should you desire insurance please wait to pay and ask to upgrade to priority mail. Generally this changes the shipping from $4.99 to about $10 If shipping is not upgraded and your item arrives damaged please open a case with eBay and list USPS at fault. Thanks!
