Most of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with dozens of distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices.
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 stops before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, to us and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
