💿 former long time collector of original 80's and 90's Compact Discs if its added to my collection then its on CD 💿

VG+💿

“Will Show Signs That It Was Played And Otherwise Handled By A Previous Owner Who Took Good Care Of It”
(should be near mint then)

and VG+ grade should be scrapped for inlays with cuts and holes!!!
Discogs grading states "it may possibly have a cut-out hole (or similar)"

no CD cover graded VG+ should have cut holes some sellers benifit now grading VG+ and don't mention cut outs now many buyers are not happy with their purchases if there is cut outs on covers that have been graded VG+

because its stated in the goldmine standard
they get away with it when buyers complain.

covers cuts on sleeves should be graded VG!!
not VG+.

a VG+ cover inlay or sleave is not handled carefully and took good care of if its been sliced with a manufacturer cut!

Descriptions like VG++++++ baffle me if it was that good of a plus then why not grade it near mint?
most VG+ i have bought on Discogs are in dreadful condition.

As for NM "yellow on the top due to tarnished cigarette smoke"
broken jewel cases (that most will blame the post service) however I find strange because the snapped prongs are never in the packing or case do they suddenly vanish? more like they are sent out already smashed...

"new unplayed" = re-sealed battered, smelly, yellow tobacco stained CDs full of scuffs

probably never played is true just used as a plate for Sunday lunch.

I wish I could post the images of CDs I have received unplayed what they actually mean is unplayable.

finger marks writing on discs scratches folded , crinkled covers stickers on cds and sleeves.
then get sent out in an envelope to save money then blame the post service for the scratches and tears.
yeh my post person opens the package then writes his name on the CD then posts it me 😆

and the best of all a CD that costs £0.99 on release day some sellers try to sell them for £200 plus and extortionate prices

try to make a generous offer of half that and they will refuse so so greedy making a profit of triple of what its worth and they are still not happy.

I have offered £200 for CDs that was listed for £300
VG+
and have been declined when previous copies sold for around £100 NM condition

I have never known so much greed lately even on generous offers I still see the same disc still for sale 3 years after.

they must be so desperate to wait their entire life for a sale for a maximum price.
just sell it for a fair price make s little profit and let the buyer enjoy it rather than leaving it for sale for over a decade.

they can always maybe charge £100 for shipping .....
to make up the price lost on accepting offers........GREED!

Wanting €250 but refusing a €200 offer then lowering it to €216 a month down the line? not like they are loosing €34
they are making a profit of €194
the CD probably cost around 6 euro new from the shop 😀

a small few sellers actually sell VG+ graded items that have actually been better than NM and closer to Mint! 💿

I own CDs over 27 year old that have been “Played and handled” and are just that still as new and have sold them as such with 💯feedback
its always nice to receive something better than advertised it is not however nice to receive something worse than advertised...

handle CDs this way they will last a life time 💿

CD’s… 💿…Cloud services fail, Hard drives crash. LPs wear out., Cassettes deteriorate, as long as you don't scratch them, CDs stay put. 💿

no flac
no wav
no mp3
no interest.
