I had to throw my hat into the ring and bid. The TTTYG vinyl with training cards is legit :)

People are bidding a loooot of money on some of that stuff. Not worth it imo, especially since they are repressing both TTTYG and FUCT. Something about this seems kind of shady to me though. Is it really his decision to sell these?

Thanks for the insight! I actually wanted to open it up to fans to add to their collections, ran into some money troubles of my own and am donating a portion to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. If you knew anything about me at all, you'd know I'm not an asshole looking for a quick buck for no reason.

Reminds me that I need to sell my 2 extra Summer Tic EPs
You could be really nice and sell me one for a decent price.

I am still pissed that I don't know where my Andy card went from when I bought tttyg on cd forever ago. I see Andy around occasionally and id have to pressure him into signing it Babe Ruth style. Haha

Next time you guys are at one of these bands shows, the chicago bands in particular, ask the bands about Johnny. This guy was the back bone of the local Chicago scene that erupted all over the world essentially. He was a legit record store worker/ diy label starter, turned Label A&R because of his rep. His collection is not the product of promo nepotism, it was built out of love for music.

tl;dr: Go fuck yourself.

Not claiming he is a bad guy or anything, just questioning whether he has the authority to sell band copies of albums that I assume belonged to the label as well as other stuff. That coupled with the (now deleted) news post about him trying to start up his new business just seemed like too much of a coincidence to be unrelated. Don't really care either way as I will not be buying this stuff.

EDIT: Seems I also misunderstood how some of these were listed. I thought he was selling ALL of these limited items (e.g. 20/20 ever made), and didn't realize that this was his one personal copy that was given to him. Nothing wrong with that I guess.

Johnny is responsible for FBR releasing some of everyone's favorite albums of all time on this site. Show some respect.

Also, didn't know you parted ways with the label Johnny. Best of luck with everything in the future, brother!
