    well, i guess that you wouldnt say that these were published in the 80s, but created in the 80s, my slayer, megadeth, metallica, albums, if somebody stole those, i would chase them down the street and beat them, id chase them if they took 1 cd, that is how passionate i am about my music,

    We have a Metallica set list from '83 when they played NYC. It is pretty good shape considering that it has been hanging on my husbands bedroom wall at his parents house for the last almost 20 years.

    The most: my autographed W.A.S.P. codpiece (this is from 1999, but still an 80's item, for me), early demos from several bands and a skull ring my brother bought from a rock festival in 1987.

    Kiss - Asylum vinyl signed by Bruce Kulick!

    And also probably my Nitro - O.F.R. vinyl, its not a collectors item or anything special just another average vinyl lol, but just coz its so damn hard to find, and it took me a year of searching before I found it.

    Metallica's 'Jump in the Fire' vinyl single in the shape of the demon from the same named album cover. I have no idea of the value, but it's special to me.
    I also have these picture discs:

    King Diamond 'Conspiracy'

    Accept self-titled first album (chainsaw lady pictured on the disc)

    Speaking of someone stealing your stuff, I had a majority of my cd's (114 of them) stolen out of my house about 5 years ago. In that collection were cd's autographed by members of Iced Earth; also Bathory cd's that are hard to find these days, and many more rare pieces. Sucks to be me, I know.

    STAY TRUE!!!
