My ebay score !!!

Picked up an early Japan pressing of The Beatles Collection. EAS-50031-44 '' The Blue Box ''
Got it for $255. Still smiling ear to ear over this one. Still in original plastic from the store. Plastic is a bit weathered, but from 1979 I would be surprised if it wasn't. The box is like new, Not a rip, tear or shelf wear. All inserts and OBI like new. Vinyl is new and sounds absolutely stunning. Not a tic or pop on the whole set. Yaeh, I played them all.
Call me one happy camper over this one. Cheers

    Sweet grab!!! Break out the DAC and convert them so you only break out the vinyl for special occasions.

    That is awesome. I would really enjoy getting my hands on that set.

    I have researched the Mofi set. But when you find them unopened they are really expensive.

    If I had the set I would play them and not worry about it.

    Congrats on the great score.

    I was gonna say I listen to all my records. Why buy them otherwise. I stand corrected. Just picked up another Beatles vinyl box.'' Beatles Deluxe Box Set 1988 Capitol BBX1-01302 '' The one with the black finished oak box with roll-up opening. Records are all still sealed. Couldn't let it pass. This one I won't open. Not a doubt in my mind someone is gonna be happy when my kids off it when I'm gone. :)

    one simply cannot have too much Beatles (too many Beatles?)...

    I gotta be the only person on the planet who hates The Beatles - they give me the friggin creeps - but I can appreciate a great acquisition like this - Fantastic! What a deal on a great collection.

    Glad to read you're actually gonna listen to them!
    Gotta love the quality of older vinyl.
  • Cool!!! Congrats my friend. How is it working now? I guess it is extremely perfect.
