- Payment: Winning bidder should contact us within 3 days of the auction’s ending. Auction must be paid 7 days after the auction closes unless other arrangements are made. If not, a Non-Paying Bidder Alert will be submitted to eBay and the auction will be considered null and void. 

Grading: We are conservative graders and try to be as concise and as accurate as possible without a lot of the standard hype.  We will never explain the condition of an item by saying it "looks good for something this old" as we consider that patronizing and an insult to potential buyers. Please ask us questions about any details about the item before bidding.


Packaging: All items are professionally packaged with high quality unused materials for shipment. No items will ever be loose in their shipping cartons. Records that are not sealed in their original shrink-wrap will never be shipped in their original jackets. All vinyl will be in poly-lined sleeves and outside of their original jackets so that no seam splitting can result from the shipping process.

Shipping charges for vinyl discs, posters and memorabilia include the cost of postage and boxes with extra padding. Good packaging is not cost effective but we insist upon safe and secure packaging. We do not want you to receive damaged items!

- STILL SEALED items cannot be returned unless they are STILL SEALED. No exceptions.
