Vinyl Condition: VG++ Barely played. Opaque banana cream white/yellow vinyl. Only played the first song when I purchased it in February 1989. I have never notice this in over 34 years, until I was taking pictures, but there's a very tiny cavity on the edge of the vinyl (see photo). Otherwise this would be a solid NM.
Cover Condition: NM Looks almost new. Purple logo. Very slight wrinkles.
Insert Condition: NM Looks almost new. Folded double-sided lyrics sheet with live photos. GB logo font is hollow on the lyric side of the insert.
Ultra-rare creamy-white/yellow vinyl, 2nd pressing of this straight-edge, hardcore punk classic 7" EP by Gorilla Biscuits from New York on Revelation Records, released in 1988. Most versions you see online of this are the same shade of yellow as the center label, or even more yellow — and most are slightly translucent, where you can see through them.
Poly sleeve still has price tag from Zed Records that shows a price of $2.99 and a date of 02/89.
I'm the original owner and purchased this from Zed Records in Long Beach, CA in Feb 1989.
One of Revelation Record's holy grails. Unknown number of copies pressed on light yellow / cream vinyl.
When the 2nd press was pressed on yellow vinyl, the record plant used yellow and white to make the mix. The white in the vinyl gives the yellow an opaque look, without the white in the mix the vinyl looks more like a translucent yellow. When the first batch of records came out, there was a higher level of white in the mix, therefore a handful of records actually came out looking a creamy off white color rather than yellow. Towards the end of the press there seems to be less white in the mix, therefore the record looks darker or slightly translucent due to the lack of white in the vinyl.

From Revelation Records: "At least two off white copies of this pressing have been found. The only plausible explanation for these would be that when the white and yellow vinyl was mixed to create the banana yellow color, a few copies were made before the vinyl was fully mixed."

I use lots of packing material, professional record shipping boxes with 2 cardboard inserts for the top and bottom for added protection. I ship the record outside of the album cover to prevent seam splits and put them both inside a poly record sleeve. 
If the auction sells for $50 or more I require insurance. I will combine shipping, $1 per record on top of original shipping cost. Wait for me to send invoice if insurance or combined shipping is needed 
All records are from my private collection, carefully stored for 30+ years, never left outside of their record sleeves unless it was on the turntable with the dustcover closed. Most of my records were only listened to once or twice, enough for me to record them to cassette tape so I could listen to them in the car at the time.
Please follow my other auctions, as I will be listing a lot of classic punk rock LPs and EPs in the near future.

MINT (M): Perfect! This record looks like it has just left the manufacturer, with NO flaws what so ever. It looks as though it had never been handled. No scuffs or scratches, blotches or stains. No stickers address labels, writing on the covers or labels. No tears or seam splits. No wear to the cover or record period! Age of the record has nothing to do with it.

NEAR MINT or NM, M-: this record appears virtually flawless A very minor scuff and very little else can appear on the vinyl. It should play without any noise over the flaw. The flaw is very hard to see. The cover looks as close to perfect with only minor signs of wear and or age. Minor impressions to the cover (due to the outer edge of the vinyl resting inside) may be acceptable, however the artwork is be as close to perfect as can be.

EXCELLENT or EX or VG++ : minor scuffs which are only slightly visible. There may be more than a few scuffs and NO Scratches COVER: Artwork is still as close to perfect as can be. Some impression to the cover (minor outer ring wear) but no ink wear! Some slight creases to the corners, but not wrinkled and obtrusive to the eye. The corners can show white, meaning slight wear. No seam splits or writing on the cover or taped repairs can make this grade.

VERY GOOD PLUS or VG+: record shows wear, surface scuffs. The vinyl still has a great luster, but the flaws will be noticeable to the naked eye. If the flaws don't cause any surface noise, the vinyl can still make the VG+ grade. COVERS: A virtually clean cover, but may have small writing on it.The artwork looks clean with slightly more aging. The back of the cover usually gives away the age of the cover. Flat white paper will be somewhat yellow yet no stains or mildew from water damage. Some minor wear to the seams or spine, but no tears or holes popping through. The corners will be slightly dog eared yet no crackly bends, defacing the artwork. In essence, a VG+ cover should have no more than 3 flaws mentioned.

VERY GOOD or VG: this record is a record that is good enough. They are not really going to look very good, but it will STILL play very good. there will almost always be some surface noise when they are played. The Dynamics should still be excellent, overpowering the surface noise. A VG record will appear well have been played but still have some luster. VG covers will look worn, used. There may be some seam splitting. There will be some ring wear, where the ink has begun to wear off. Giving the cover a look of snow falling. If the artwork looks snowy all over, it is less than VG condition. There may be some writing on the cover (still, no Large letters in magic marker). It will look aged and more yellowish due to contamination's in the air (sometimes looking like cigarette smoke). Still it should be decent.

GOOD or G: A good record will look very well played, dull, grayish and possibly abused. However a Good record should still play. It will have distracting surface noise. Such as crackle that is continuous or some hiss. Will also have some loss of dynamics caused from grooves being worn. It should play without any skips or any obtrusively loud pops or repeated clicks, caused by deep scratches. Good means that it will play with some form of decency, so one can still enjoy the music even though you can still hear noise caused from the wear. A Good cover will have just about everything wrong with it. It will have seam splits (possibly taped repaired, but only with scotch tape. No duct tape or masking tape repairs. These are big turn offs. May have magic marker writing on the cover but still if they are in huge letters, it is a big turn off.In essence, the cover will looked virtually trashed, but some artwork will still be noticed. If the artwork is worn, it is POOR and the cover is worthless.
