I'm a record collector. I'm nostalgic. After years of buying re-issues, I am re-buying originals of albums i grew up loving. Please no comments sarcastic comments designed to impress people please. So, I sought out and purchased Prince "Sign O' the Times" on vinyl. Original issue. My criteria was to try to find a copy in NM shape with a Near Mint sleeve. So, I found one. It was a little more money to buy it than the VG+ copies, etc.. So, today it arrives. It's only got one of the two records and there is fat permanent Sharpie ink really large across the shrink. $29.99 crossed out with $14.99 below it. I can't get the ink off with GooGone or anything I cannot get to a place where this is Near Mint. Here are lame sarcastic responses no one wants to hear "You have most of the music, what do you care?" "Uhhh, why don't you uhhh, just stream the other record..." I want to keep the shrink on because it has a large, unique heart-shaped hype sticker on it. Would you consider this near mint? Should I be OK with it? I paid $50.00. I sent the seller a note and am awaiting her response. But, there was nowhere in the Discogs listing that revealed "WOC" (writing on cover) or "record 2 only". Nothing. Thoughts?
