PRICE AND AVAILABILITY:Because of the fast-moving nature of the label and collectibles businesses, prices and availability are subject to change without notice. If a label is not in stock when you place your order, (for example not yet in stock or sold out), we will do our best to let you know and to let you know when and/or if the merchandise will be available.

Unfortunately, we do not have a bank-based merchant account yet for our on-line customers. So, until we do, we ask that you use the above methods of payment.
