  1. Oh yeah that looks way better than my old copy no matter which damage I get.
  2. Yeah that would make sense. There are too many unflippable records due to lack of interest that somehow have larger pressings than the in demand ones to really balk at their figure in the end.

  4. I thought I was getting trolled for the first few seconds haha. I'm expecting variety from anything these guys do, neat direction.
  5. I feel like this is the single lamest air of superiority post I've ever read on the internet lol
  6. I'm not sure where you're counting but ebay shows 46 copies sold for me. Yeah there's more listed but thats not part of their statistic. Even 60 is 6% of 1,000 so it's a huge stretch to throw that number out there and say "yeah so at least 20% were flipped". Thats 140 more copies, discogs currently shows 8 sales.
  7. For anyone that missed out I've got a really fair price in mind for my last pressing that received a thrashing from Europe shipping. Has a few light hairline scratches too from poor pressing plant QC but plays through perfect and sounds great. As for the jacket it has the one bad dog-eared corner on top and the other one isn't much better. Bottom is pristine though (if you're into that). Also features a seam split to bring everything together. $28ppd
  8. What's wrong with that figure? Is it fair to say that Cherry Bomb was probably one of the highest profile releases of the drops? Just looking at that I see 249 sold listings on ebay and another 13 on discogs with a good amount still for sale. Let's add up all the secondary sales and then add 150 more just to be safe (if my ebay search somehow missed that many) to not undercut the actual percentage and get 400-450 copies that have probably sold on the aftermarket. There were 7,250 copies pressed for the US and another 7,250 for the rest of the world. So out of 14,500 copies about 2.7-3.1% have been flipped publicly. Even if I somehow missed 250-300 more secondary sales it only just hits 5%. Yeah every release is different but I'm sure when averaged together it won't be too far off 95%.
  9. Or they're allowing people who don't care about corner dings and seam splits to have a cheaper option. Kinda funny they do that to people who think they're doing something clever 😄
