A limited-edition vinyl copy of METALLICA's "Ride the Lightning" LP, featuring the band's logo in red, was recently sold on eBay for a whopping $2,247! The LP was apparently one of only 500 copies that were pressed up in 1989 by the band's European record label, Phonogram/Vertigo, and features an individual numbering sticker.

I have only played it a couple of times, and besides that it has been in my vinyl shelves for 16 years or something now! The sleeve shows signs of age, but it's nothing major. Anyway, I think it will be a long time untill you will see this one for sale on eBay again!!"
