Buy what you want, as you want it, at your price. Patience. Who has not seen a better item come up after purchase? It happens. Some crazy cosmic law. Research. Price and quality compare. Include that BP% in the bid. Don't impulse buy. Most junk can be eliminated with adherence to a few "rules" IMHO.
I agree on that, It's not the old original Sgt peppers lp, it just 20 pickguards shoved in the artist face and the ip dealer thinks he's god.
My mate was showing me some of his collection, modern ish , Dyaln graphs signed on old lp's and they look brilliant, it has that classic look about them because the lp's are collectible.
You don't see that now, or pencil.
Ive mentioned before one of the surfers here , he was in Endless summer, he will only sign in pencil because it doesn't fade.
It don't know if you should call dealers trusted sellers if there prices out weigh the value of the item and the whole sell when you die thing is taking advantage of people.
The extinction of the autograph book.
