Far from mint condition, if you ask me… :roll:

Not necessarily. I’ve seen some of these go for $150-175. (And they looked better than this set.)

haha, this reminds me, once i was at a second hand record store and one of the customers suddenly started licking a record he just took out of the sleeve.
the lady of the store said: \"hey, stop that! you’ve been doing this before and other customers have been complaining about it. it’s gross. and why would you lick it in the first place?!? and you’ve never bought anything here. you just come in to lick records and scare away people.\"
and he said: \"i know what you’re doing! you’re treating the records with product, so they look shinier than they really are. i can taste it!\"
and the lady said: \"hell no, why would we do that? get the fuck out!\"
and then he went out of the store. true story.

Those smudges I believe are ink smudges, not caused by water or anything else. I believe they were caused during printing or soon after before the ink had dried.

I say this as a few of my UK CDR acetate pumpkins promo’s have a similar markings and the ink appears to have been smudged either by the print head or placing the copies on top of each other before they had dried.

Do you think it’s ink? I thought it was toner. (From a laser printer, instead of a inkjet printer.)

I think it’s normal that toner starts sticking to the plastic after a while. (In this case it has nothing to do with putting the inserts in the plastic sleeves while the ink is still wet. It just happens after a while.)

One can see clearly on the top right cd that the ink/toner marks have been caused by inserting the inner paper in at least 2 ways. The Virgin logo is copied onto the plastic sleeve on the top right while the ink/toner was not dry yet. For the rest it’s mainly some wrinkles in the paper, so the whole set looks OK to me. Not by any means "mint" but just OK. Still worthwhile buying I guess.

And the seller is rather honest about it too, as you probably noticed.

"The 3 eps have a few light marks,excellent to excellent+ condition.The album has some marks,plays fine,excellent- to excellent condition.The sleeves have a few grubby fingerprints but excellent+ condition"
