    a guy sold this to me on ebay for $110 about a month after the Black Friday sale, even then I knew it was a steal. now someone is selling a sealed mint copy for $15,000 on ebay, with $3.49 shipping (lol)

      Got mine for free from a friend who moved and said she’d never listen to vinyl again. Steal of the century

        From my understanding a large majority of these in circulation are bootlegs, and a lot of people are unaware. Is there photos I could post of mine to help people ID there’s? Is there a place where you can see what bootlegs look like

          As someone who actually has this pressing, the sound quality is the standard "flatter than digital" modern vinyl sound from cheap lacquers. It's not horrible, but barely worth how it cost at the time and definitely not worth 800$+. It's still really weird how this only sold for a single day, it's very obvious Frank wanted scarcity for this pressing for the "cool rare vinyl" factor

            It's an awesome pressing. The build up on pink and white is phenomenal sounding, as is the rest of the record. Definitely get it if you're after a great listening experience.

                Just buy a bootleg, good God. You're not supporting Frank buying from resellers anyway.

                  Y'all know if you stopped buying this for like a year prices would come down, right? Mark my words, if nobody buys this shit until December of 2022 we could all pay like $300. By 2023 who knows.

                    Managed to snatch one on release, lifetime collection for sure.

                      I saw this at Amoeba Records, real one, not fake for 800, iirc. It sold right away.
