FOR THE FIRST:
I am new to eBay, but I have been dealing with collectors all over the world for many years now, so I am absolutely reliable!I only signed up on eBay to sell this record (since it's the best sale-place in the world I've heard)
This is THE Metallica item, the HOLY GRAIL!
This is no joke!This is a serious auction with a highly serious item, only COLLECTORS ARE ALLOWED TO BID!I do not want my record to end up in the wrong home!
TITLE: METALLICA - RIDE THE LIGHTNING
CAT#: 838 140-1
MADE IN: EUROPE
This is the highly collectable RTL edition with RED 'metallica' logo on the front sleeve.It also has a numbering sticker on the front, it says:
"LIMITED RED LOGO EDITION NO. 111 OF 500"
Not only is it limited to only 500 copies, but ONLY 3 COPIES HAVE BEEN FOUND (INCLUDING THIS ONE)!!!

(see record listing number 42)
I bought this record from a friend who owned a record shop back in early '90's when I lived in Germany.It was unused and all new when I bought it, but I don't think it came shrinkwrapped.
I have only played it a couple of times, and besides that it has been in my vinyl shelfs for 26 years or something now!
The sleeve shows signs of age, but it's nothing major.Anyway, I think it will be a long time untill you will see this one for sale on eBay again!!
The last copy that was for sale on the collectors market -a couple of years ago- sold for incredible $1100!!!!
So, by reading the last one, you should understand that I only sell this one because I've got bills to pay.

On Jan-22-06 at 07:01:03 PST, seller added the following information:Just to correct:
Since this record was made in '89, and I am the original owner, I have had it for about 16-17 years, NOT 26 years (as stated in the description), that was just a type-o.
