Seller's Shipping Information

WELCOME! To Zion's Gate Records!

We specialize in good music from every genre.

A quick note about sleeve grading: We sometimes grade a Mint Sleeve as Near Mint . A true mint grade is basically impossible in my opinion...especially once something is shipped. So our near mint is the grade for most new copies of LP's, etc.
