Grading:

As you can see from our feedback, we take grading of records very seriously. Generally every buyer we have sold to has been happy with the condition of the record they bought. Recently it became apparent that we actually under grade our records in comparison to other ebay sellers. This is very hard to adjust, but rest assured, if we grade anything EX, then it really is immaculate. Other ebay sellers are now buying our records and relisting them with higher grades! Our VG+ is the same as many other seller's EX+.

Our grading is a mixture of audio and visual grading, and very importantly, we guarantee you will be happy with our records. If you disagree with our condition, simply return for a full refund. Also check the large photos as they describe the sleeve condition better than a grade ever could. 

How It Works:

Eg:  EX/EX = First EX refers to the record, the second the sleeve (if picture sleeve is included). If the grading shown above shows just the first initials (eg: VG/- ) then that means the record is graded, but comes with plain or company sleeve.


RECORD CONDITION

MINT
As new condition, unplayed, often Sealed. We don't like using this grade on records unless we are certain they have never been played, ie, were purchased as brand new items, or the item is one of a multiple from a dealer sold them to us as unplayed. We never grade played records as MINT. We don't use the term EX+

EX  Excellent condition, no noticeable marks and like new. Records graded as EX are immaculate, fantastic examples of the record in question. No marks, scratches, warps, damage of any kind. Often records which we grade as EX look as they have never been played - but we don't know for sure.

EX- Close to Excellent condition, usually we use EX- if there are light brush marks visible under our spotlight. All EX- records are Excellent, no scratches, warps or damage of any kind.

VG+ This is a grade many buyers of perfect records avoid, but to us VG+ is the grade we give to a used but still very nice LP. This is the grade we get most correspondence from buyers about, most saying how to them this is an EX record, not VG+. There may be a very light, but more significant mark on a VG+ record (though this would normally be mentioned along with the grade), generally this is a used record in very good condition, with light brush marks.

VG Very Good condition, normal wear, maybe a few very light marks, but still plays great. Perhaps not as shiny and new looking as a VG+ record. This is our average grade.

VG- Between VG and G, these records aren't in great condition, average amount of marks, but generally still fully playable. These records will have lost their shine, perhaps dulled with age, they will have been well used.

G+ Just about better than good. These records are heavily played, possibly badly marked. They are good enough to play,  but you may well later want to replace with a better copy for your collection.

G This is our bottom grade. Could have heavy marks, be noisy to play, perhaps a more significant scratch. Heavily used, but playable is our general description of a G record. We try not to list anything with warps, if a record has a playable warp this would be mentioned along with the grade.  

F Fair condition, marked and some problems. There will be more information to describe faults. We try to avoid listing F records unless particularly rare or interesting. Generally collection filler only.

SLEEVE CONDITION

EX Excellent condition, no noticable folds or creases, no sticker marks, As New. Generally you will be incredibly impressed with a sleeve we grade as EX. No laminate damage, nice spine, no writing.

EX- Close to Excellent condition, possibly a small fault like laminate lift, a word written on sleeve, slight edge fault or damage.

VG+ Very good condition, this is the kind of sleeve most other sellers would grade as EX. In great shape, but light and normal wear.

VG Very good, used condition. Light and normal wear, possibly a small fault, like laminate lift, edge/spine damage, or writing.

VG- Worn sleeve, but still usable. Possible wear to edges, spine, and laminate. Possible writing on the sleeve.

G+ Good condition is moving towards the more tatty end of sleeve grading. Possible laminate damage, creases, spine wear, graphiti, and edge wear.

G Some wear, possible creasing, marks, damage, freyed edges.

F In Fair condition, possible heavy creasing, tears, damage and defacement. We try to avoid F Sleeves, so check the full sleeve description.

After nearly twenty years of grading records either for our London shop, or our online site or ebay, you get a feeling for the grade of a record, hopefully the description above helps to describe the grade of this record, but if you have any further questions on any particular aspect of the condition of this record, we're happy to answer emails at retrobloke@aol.com

Multiple LP parcels are packed in bespoke LP Box mailers. We take the packing of vinyl very seriously, and do all we can to ensure that our records reach you in the condition they left us.

Retrobloke - Bid with Confidence:

Our site and ebay shop are a natural compliment to our high street record shop. That means we've got a long history of dealing with customers in the real world, aswell as online. You'll find more information about us on our Ebay About Me page.

Our dedicated mail order office operates seperately from our shop, handling both ebay sales, and those from our own site, which has been selling hard to find records since 1998. 

We take pride in offering exceptional customer service, and fast delivery times. We always do our very best to ensure our customers are happy and always work hard to resolve any problems that very occasionally occur.
