  • Do you keep the HYPE stickers affixed to new/old purchases?

    I do, and also the original inner sleeves if they have writing on them. I cut them out and slide them between the front of the outer sleeve and jacket so I can see them. From various threads on other fora I can't really determine if most do or don't...not that it matters much or is even remotely important, but I'm just interested.

    It really irks me if I buy let's say a used Classic Records reissue and it doesn't have the oval hype sticker identifying what the vinyl is.

    Am I being anal about this? LOL!

    I guess I just try and keep the plastic outer sleeve. All of my records are kept in plastic outer sleeves.

    Do keep the obi on Japanese pressings! 😀

      Japanese pressings are worth considerably more with the obi sash. Kind of silly but thats the way it is. Never toss an obi away.

    Even the MFSL ones? I don't like those outer sleeves...too large and flimsy.

      At first i used to cut out the hype stickers on cellophane wrapped LPs and stick them in the jacket i quit over time. If the LP was sold with a loose perforated bag I usually reuse them for storage, but at some point I replace all the outer sleeves as well. Everything is now entered into a spread sheet, mainly so I don't accidentally buy the same record over again but also to keep track of its provenance, value, etc.

        If any hype stickers, I carefully cut the wrap, take it off and put it into the album cover which is then placed in a new outer sleeve.

          John if you could get a screaming deal on a Jpn pressing w/o OBI would you still pass on it? same for the hype sticker, why keep them unless you're going to trade/resale the record at some point.

              If I got a screaming deal then I'd forego the Obi. I was speaking more in terms of standard pricing. I just like to keep everything as original as possible.
