Jacket condition doesn't always concern me Johnny. I've found many well-loved covers that had pristine vinyl inside. Of course, there are always exceptions. You have to be diligent. I stopped in to a Record Store during Record Store Day and the owner had graded ALL the used vinyl by putting a little note on the price sticker, like, "Plays great", or "Some surface noise but not bad" and one I bought, "Visible Scratches but PLAYS GREAT!" He was right. It played GREAT.
