    I like them so I can quickly find what I'm looking for. and I love the background info on the back. But I understand your frustration. We've got some plans this year for the Obi strips. Idk if you'll like it or not.

    I like 'em just fine. better than that J-sleeves actually, and I liked those. I store my records outside of the sleeve in the outer, so i only have to worry about it the one time.

    Im not the target market for frills of that nature. Even the classics booklet (as well done as it is) does nothing for me

    I added better Simz pictures to Discogs but it's being weird. I think Discogs is having issues ATM.

    Easier said then done (in my case). I just wish it was a classic strip that fully wrapped the record.

    If anyone decides they don't want their simz let me know. I was on the fence too long and missed out

    If it was a real OBI strip you wouldn't need to insert it in, and fight with it putting it in a plastic sleeve. You'd literally never have to take off an OBI strip unless you wanted to peek the gatefold art. And well, none of them are gatefold yet I don't think.

    Is it possible to switch to a more user friendly design if enough peeps complain?

    I hate them. They are the worst. And OBI strips are cool. But this isn't even an OBI strip.

    I think a few people joined to lock in De la without really wanting Simz (I did, but then it grew on me), so I'd get a post in Buy-Sell-Trade out there now while people's packages are arriving.

    Eh, I like it ok. If I leave it in the sleeve then it's easy to pull the record in and out. It's easy to tell what record I'm grabbing too.

    I’m indifferent about the obi strips.
    On one hand, they are kind of a pain to get into an outer sleeves, but at the same time this was apart of the package that VMP threw into the sub that (as far as I know) nobody asked for.
    You can bring on the Goddess Erykah Badu mock-up now that I’ve given my 1 1/2 cents.

    Living Legends was a gatefold.

    And I agree, these slips are a sorry excuse for an obi strip, I always have a bit of a struggle getting it in the sleeve.
