Note that this is NOT MINE… but holy mother of god… I just saw this on Instagram (and invited them here)
It’s a fucking TEST pressing of the Dork that someone, SOMEHOW got their hands on. It’s this:

Here’s the Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/joeyxcahill/
Not a test pressing, just a promo version that has some hand-coloring. While its still pretty cool, I want to see a pic of the yellow tests pressings.
It has a different etching in the runout too that references that it’s a promotional copy. I remember one went on ebay in 06/07 - probably this one. You can see it on Popsike.
That’s so cool. There were only six promo copies of Dork ever made.
Yeah, I’d also like to see the yellow test pressing. Back in the day, I heard rumors of the band’s teachers getting a test pressing. I have no idea if that’s true or not.
So I have no idea if this shirt is rare or not, but I freaked because I saw SMITH! I also saw that it had CinderBlock tags, so it’s legit. Anyone know if this shirt is common or not? @Snobgrass @dnlkdwll @insectpins @4ibanez @_tonibell @Vanished
I made an offer and got it for $32.
I had no idea that that was a thing. That’s awesome! I love Smith’s status in this band.
Crash Love, Burials variants… #jealousy
Okay, when exactly did the rest of the BSITS variants come out? I know the grey one was first… but what about the others?
EDIT: @SilverAndCold I merged your post into this existing thread.
I have never seen it before but it does make sense seeing how Smith is on one of the records that comes in the DU 7” clear box set. You definitely need it for your collection
Is that a PROMO cassette???
Yes sir it is!!! First one I have ever owned
Who Knew I’d ever be so jealous of a cassette tape. Jesus… it makes me wonder how rare that is.
The only thing close to an outdated version of media that I have is my Girl’s Not Grey VHS.
Good stuff to you too, @4ibanez !
Dude a bunch of STS era promo vhs tapes were on eBay for all of 10 minutes the other day.
They sold for $99-150 each.
WTF WHEN??? Do you remember what all they were? (goes to “Sold listings” on eBay…)
EDIT: Here it is. It looks like it did sell for $99, otherwise it would say "Best offer accepted"
I saw one for sale…were the others “buy it now”?
This is the one I was watching.
Yeah they all were. Five minutes after I saw them they were gone.
Okay, I don’t know if I ever saw that one before but I edited my previous post with the one that I saw sold… this is the one I have. I see there was also a Silver and Cold promo VHS - that one, I DON’T have.
Wow. I guess I never really thought about collecting them. Guess I’ll pay more attention now.
