RAMONES Very 1st Vinyl Record 1976 STERLING NY TEST PRESS LP Unplayed Punk CBGB
Ramones: same 1976, USA/Columbia-Sire SASD 7520 Test Pressing. Disc is M-, no spindle marks on the labels, it looks unplayed! This was issued in a plain cover with a small stamp (see pic #2) and a (loose) info sheet. At some point, someone used two "Factory Sealed For Your Protection" stickers to attach the loose info sheet to the plain white cover... for this reason, the cover gets an EX grade. Holy Grail item here, a genuine STERLING mastered test pressing of the Ramones' debut LP! The condition is stunning, it's like new (forgive any dust bits you see on the record in my photos; that cloth-covered table I use to take ebay pics has a lot of static). Believe me, it's a time capsule piece. This is something everybody wants but nobody has... so if you're a dedicated Ramones fan and want the ultimate Christmas present for yourself, now's your chance. Nobody else is gonna get you one!
Everything I offer is guaranteed. I try to note any flaws with the disc and the cover so that there are no surprises when the box arrives. Be sure to view my other activegod auctions as I have other interesting items up for grabs this week.
I ship all records in strong cardboard mailers with cardboard flats added to increase stability. The discs are always removed from the jackets to prevent seam splits, and all albums are dressed in plastic sleeves for travel. Please be aware that these supplies are expensive to purchase and may represent a small portion of my shipping charges. I pack/ship one day per week, usually it is Friday.
USA: I can send this LP to you by Media Mail for $5.00, or by Priority Mail, which will be calculated after the auction using your zip code. Most of my customers prefer Media Mail because it is very cheap. Please keep in mind that it's cheap because it is SLOW. I have had Media Mail boxes take two months to travel cross-country.
CANADA: If you are in Canada, I can send this LP to you by 1st Class Airmail for $17.00. This service offers no tracking. If you want online tracking, ask me about mailing options.
