For Books: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread book in perfect condition.

For Vinyls: This was purchased direct from the manufacturer and/or retailer and not second hand from a private party.

Autographed Like New

For Books: The book has been signed by the author and may include a neat message to someone from the author. These books have greater value because they are autographed!

For Vinyls – These boxes may be autographed by the person or company that the vinyl represents or it may have a signed card inside it.

Used Like New

For Books: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind. 

For Vinyls: This is a Vinyl that may have been previously opened. The box will appear new, and the vinyl appear new, but we know the box has been opened.

Used Very Good

For Books: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged. 

For Vinyls: This is a Vinyl that has a box that shows wear, but where the vinyl itself is in like new condition. We downgrade because boxes impact resale value and we know this.

Used Good

For Books: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include “From the library of” labels or previous owner inscriptions.¬†Sometimes these books will have a black mark on the bottom across the page edges.

For Vinyls: A Vinyl that shows wear and tear and the box shows wear and tear. These may have spent considerable time outside their boxes.

Used Acceptable

For Books: A readable copy. All pages are mostly intact, and the cover is intact (the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes–in pen or highlighter–but the notes cannot obscure the text. Expect to see considerable wear and tear on these – we’ve reduced the prices considerably to account for them.

For Vinyls: These Vinyls have considerable wear and tear, may be considered damaged and should only be purchased if you plan on displaying for sentimental value. They are most certainly used, opened, and may be missing the box entirely. Buy at your own risk. No guarantees / No refunds on purchases of this type.
