Grading Guidelines

A few words about the grading of records.   We grade conservatively, which means our records are normally in better shape than what we have listed them at.  It is possible to get a high price for a beat-up record, if it's exceptionally rare. So if you see a record graded vg-/vg- or   g/g+ and seems to have a high price on it, it is because the value is based on it's rarity.  Our records are graded cover first then record.   Most are graded Visually which means we look at the record only to decide what the grade will be.  In an ideal world, every record would be played before it is graded.  But the time involved,  makes it  impractical and  virtually impossible.  If the record has been play graded, it will say so.
