Swiz 'Down' Test

Some things pop up on eBay and you think you don't stand a chance. You just figure that every man and his dog will be ready to fight for it. But sometimes you're wrong and the fight is quite short, the other dude ducks out and you stand victorious, wondering why it was so easy.

So yeah, I won this Swiz test press for what I think was a fair price. It comes in a proper sleeve, although the comic book insert is not included. Fair enough.

I had actually seen a picture of this test press before. Someone posted a picture of a complete collection on the Vinyl Collective board a few years ago. The dude got it from someone who got it from Jason Farrell, and said that he was told that it was one of three copies. Since it isn't numbered, we will never know, but it's nice to think that there may only be three of these things out there.

Of course, now that I have this one and the three coloured vinyl copies I also want a black vinyl copy to complete the set. I didn't want one before, but now I feel I need one in my life. Man, why does this always happen?

That is awesome. Congratulations. If I would have seen it on ebay, we would have battled :-)
