PLEASE NOTE: I WILL ONLY GRADE AN LP NEAR MINT (NM) IF I CAN GUARANTEE IT HAS NEVER BEEN PLAYED (i.e. I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER).  OTHERWISE, NEAR MINT MINUS (NM-) IS THE ABSOLUTE HIGHEST GRADE I WILL ASSIGN AN OPENED LP.


If you collect, or have ever collected The White Stripes, then you're well aware of where this LP sits on every want list.  Extremely limited first (and ONLY!) Australian gatefold pressing from 2003 on XL Records with both original matte rigid full color printed inner sleeves with complete lyrics and alternate cover art unique to this sole pressing featuring Jack and Meg in white attire (NOT black and red!).  LPs are a beautiful VG++/NM-.  Cover is VG++ with a tiny seam at the top middle.  It's been years since one of these has come up for auction so don't miss your chance Stripes collectors.  It took me years to find this copy back in the mid-2000s and it will most likely be years before another one surfaces.  Shipping will be extra due to the rarity of this LP as it will be heavily reinforced.


I USE GOLDMINE GRADING: MINT (SEALED)
NEAR MINT: LOOKS UNPLAYED VG++:  VERY VERY MINIMAL SIGNS OF USE
VG+:  AVERAGE SIGNS OF USE, NOTHING DEEP, SUPERFICIAL VG:  STILL AN OK RECORD, NOISE BETWEEN SONGS
GOOD: WORN BUT PLAYS FINE WITH DISTRACTING NOISE POOR:  FILLER COPY ONLY.  LOTS OF SCRATCHES
