Tamala Lewis Sells For $170!?

Recommended Posts

Initial thoughts....

Nothing to suggest this is a photocopied label in the description

What blue boot? didn't know there was one....

Why so few views for such a potentially big ticket item? Was it a short time listing?

Gutted if i'd missed this..........big time want

If you look closely, looks like the upper portion of the label has some black on it (which would indicate it was a scan).  

However, I always thought the boot had a raised/ribbed edge

I've never seen either in person though so no idea  :unsure:

I'd say it's a boot , if you look at the inner rim of the label around the hole it looks a  little oval and miss sharpened especially on the b side . I could be wrong . regards S.

Kicking myself I didn't see this last week, but it looks to be an OG Tamala Lewis sold for a fraction of what it normally does?

Can anyone confirm if it's not a boot from the pic?  If it is real, has demand gone that far down or just a fluke? 

Here it is a first time...

Looks like it was one I sold in 2011 - just checked and I sold it for £10 - It was just an orange boot with scans of originals stuck on, and sold as such.

Here's the pic from my original listing on eBay, circa 2011

Positive it's the very same copy.

 

Cheers

If you look even closer, someone has gone over the thicker bits of the logo with a silver pen...

It was a stuck on label, I spoke to the person who bought it today, he didn't read the description

 

The one linked in post #1 didn't mention any stuck on labels.

Stuck on labels really suck... In the long run, this has got to be the worst thing that could happen to record collecting. At least you (usually) know where you stand when you buy a plain bootleg. Selling counterfeit records with fake labels added, and marketed to deceive the unwary is bound to cause problems somewhere along the way.

So did you have the op too? I like a person who is frank. I know a girl in Wales called Nia which would be a good name for someone called Ian. My nan used to get her sausages from Dewhirsts. 

Please darling, no more apologies.
