There were actually hundreds of these printed. I saw the pallet of misprinted sleeves (without records) turn up at Rough Trade Distribution in 1988 when I worked there. I was asked to keep an eye on them in the warehouse basement so no one could grab a copy. There may well be only 14 copies left in existence as I believe the pallet was returned to the printers to be destroyed that same day. By the way, I never got one!
