Copy from a California, smoke free, super collector's home. Discs always stored inside a temperature controlled home inside a plastic sleeve. Sleeve removed to take photographs. 



Due to the large volume of inventory I have, I am not able to test every disc. All items are untested unless stated otherwise. Because all items are vintage new old stock or used/secondhand, there are no returns. However if the disc has laser rot or your order arrived damaged, please contact me for store credit. If you are unhappy with your order for any other reason, please email describing the issue and we can work something out!



Please note that disc photos are stock photos, unless stated as otherwise, and actual item condition may vary from these photos

All discs/covers are graded along the same lines as the Goldmine Record Grading Scale


Tested discs with any signs of laser rot will be graded along the LDDB laser rot scale:

  • 1/5 - Light rot: a few speckles, hard to notice, might be a scratched master
  • 2/5 - Medium rot: still can be watched but speckles are becoming distracting
  • 3/5 - Heavy rot: multicolored snow all over the screen
  • 4/5 - Critical rot: analog sound is distorted, digital sound clicks and pops
  • 5/5 - Death: disc cannot be played anymore

If you have specific questions about discs and condition, I'm always happy to answer questions and provide photos! Feel free to email!
