FRANK ZAPPA / THE MOTHERS OF INVENTIONS

I'VE DECIDED TO PUT THIS EXTREMELY UNIQUE COLLECTION FOR SALE; I'M MOVING MY FAMILY OVERSEAS AND I WANT TO SELL MY COLLECTION BEFORE WE GO. SOME PARTS OF THIS COLLECTION WERE BROUGHT FROM EUROPE WHEN WE MOVED HERE 25 YEARS AGO AND WAS COMPLETED HERE WITH COUNTLESS HOURS OF SEARCH AND FINDING MISSING PIECES, WITH A LOT OF BUCKS SPENT ALONG THE WAY. IN THIS ENDLESS PROCESS, I'VE ENDED WITH SOMETHING SO RARE AND TRULY COLLECTIBLE THAT IT WOULD TAKE ANOTHER LIFETIME TO ACQUIRE AND SOME OF THESE COLLECTIBLES MAY NEVER SHOW UP OR NOT SHOW UP FOR A VERY LONG TIME. TO BE CLEAR THIS IS A VERY EXPENSIVE VENTURE, BUT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE EFFORT AND DEDICATION REQUIRED TO PIECE THIS COLLECTION TOGETHER WAS FIRST OF ALL, A VERY EXPENSIVE JOURNEY FOR ME, ONE THAT I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED AND SECONDLY A REAL LABOR OF LOVE AND I WANT IT TO GO TO SOMEONE WHO SHARES THIS SAME LOVE FOR IT. IN ADDITION, THIS IS DEFINITELY A GREAT INVESTMENT, AS I'VE INCLUDED PERFECT DOUBLES FOR ALL ALBUMS INCLUDED, SO YOU NEVER NEED TO OPEN THE SEALED COPIES, WHICH WILL ENSURE THEIR VALUE AS IT ONLY INCREASES.

VERY IMPORTANT: WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF PUTTING PICTURES OF EVERY SINGLE ITEM INCLUDED IN THIS PURCHASE WITH MORE DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS ON A GOOGLE DRIVE AND THE LINK WILL BE ADDED HERE SOON SO YOU ACTUALLY CAN SEE WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR. EBAY HAS LIMIT OF 12 PICTURES PER ITEM AND WE ARE POSTING HUNDREDS OF THEM ON GOOGLE DRIVE.

SO FAR WE HAVE ADDED OVER 1000 PICTURES OF THE ITEMS INCLUDED IN THIS COLLECTION, YOU CAN VIEW THEM USING THIS LINK WHICH WILL TAKE YOU TO A GOOGLE DRIVE DIVIDED INTO THE PARTS LISTED BELOW WHICH WILL SHOW YOU THE PICTURES OF THE ITEMS IN THOSE PARTS
