    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    In the ’60s, the Japanese went wild for a new fad coming out of America and England—rock ’n’ roll. Albums by Elvis Presley and Briti...

    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!
Working...
