Panic State Records are selling a test press of Sink or Swim (first press) for charity. Specifically, the seller states:

"100% of proceeds are being donated to the following charities to help the people of NJ and rebuild our battered state:

The Food Bank of Ocean and Monmouth County
Salvation Army
ASPCA
AmeriCares
Occupy Sandy"

As for the record itself, the seller states:

"The Gaslight Anthem Sink or Swim Test Press from 2006. Rarest of all versions available. This is the original FIRST PRESSING Hellbent Test Press. ONLY 6 IN EXISTENCE. This is the BAND and RECORD LABEL copy. We know where all 6 are and this is the first time any of these have been sold. It looks different from the ones currently available because these have never been available before. Numbered 6/6. This was donated to us from Joe Oz, owner of Hellbent Records. Joe is an amazing dude and friend. We are so honored to have this item and make it available to you."

El Jefe, I couldn't have said it better myself except I'd say, Great People, Great Cause! Panic State Records is really working hard to help NJ after the 2 storms that came through.... theres some amazing stuff being auctioned off beyond just Gaslight so check his other auctions for skateboards, posters, shoes, clothes... its amazing how many people that have gotten involved with this project to help out.

It's really good to see that things like these auctions appear to help the people that suffer from catastrophies etc.

However I decided once not to go for older Gaslight vinyls so I stick to it and will not bid for it Smile Luckily there are also other ways to donate ...

Any predictions? I'd say this easily tops $500. Maybe it is the first to hit $1000.

If this is the "first press" test pressing, what are the test presses that are already out there?

so since I know the guy running the auction, and I have one of the other test presses out there of course I asked.... and the answer he got was that they originally ordered 6 initial TP's and then after all of it was said and done they ordered additional TP's. Now, the only difference is (I held the auction's TP and geeked out) the only difference is the labels.
