PostSubject: Tips for a newbie?   Wed Feb 25, 2009 2:05 pm

Hi everyone,

Firstly I'm kinda new to the forum so sorry if I break any house rules or anything, in the past I've found some boards to be very picky when it comes to this.

I love the Gaslight Anthem (I expect you all do hence why you're a member of this forum) and am pondering starting to collect vinyl. From reading forum posts/list I understand some of you are absolute gods when it comes to this with complete collections, rare items etc.

Therefore I was wondering if you could possible share any tips at all with me you may have picked up through experience about getting started/getting a collection? It could be blindingly obvious (e.g. where to buy? - I'm in the UK by the way) to the not so obvious things only veteran collectors may know.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I also started recently,but here are my tow 'tips':
1.First buy the versions which are still available in stores for the normal price.They might be sold out soon,too,and then they're more rare and expensive than.
2.Here is a list (thanks again to stalls_standing) with the recent prices,so I wouldn't pay much more than the prices on the list... Wink

And now have fun while collecting Smile

For all future presses, definately get involved in pre-orders and look at sites like Vinyl Collective often.
The hardest records to get will be Sink or Swim on Black and Senor and Queen on white

Thanks guys.
I've had a copy of Old White Lincoln ordered from one website for two weeks, still not got it. Looks like they've sold out, so I know to act quickly in future!

Vinyl Collective, I'll remember that one.
I'd heard that SoS on black is very rare, and will keep a look out, but had no idea SaQ White was two. Ideally I don't want to have to sell one of my kidneys on the black market to fund buying a record, so I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled!

Any more tips/hints would be great. I'd best get buying. Wink

I think using the list that Stalls put together in the other thread (I will try to remember to come back and post it here) is really helpful and makes eBay much better... just cause a print is OOP does not make it valuable...

my suggestion if you are going to get into collecting vinyl is try to get a 1st pressing of each record and then also whatever you think it is the coolest looking one; otherwise it gets really expensive
