From misfitscentral.com:

The pressing number of 5000 copies listed for this release on most discographies (including The Misfits Box Set ) is incorrect. In June 1979, Glenn ordered 2000 yellow vinyl copies to be pressed from a record plant in NJ. When he was told that this did not meet the plant's minimum order for colored vinyl, Glenn had the pressing plates shipped to a plant on the west coast, but due to an incombatibility in plate sizes, pressing was delayed. However, Glenn had the plant press a quick batch of 25 copies to be given away at the band's upcoming 06/26/1979 show with The Damned . Meanwhile, Glenn had 2000 sleeves printed with a back cover featuring a group photo of the band. Due to the light coloring of the black ink on the back, Glenn decided to redo the sleeve. Most of the original sleeves were cut in half by Glenn and Bobby; the front covers were saved for use as promotional items, and the back covers were thrown away. Bobby saved about 20-30 uncut sleeves and more than 100 cut sleeves. Some uncut sleeves were also saved by Glenn and given to Barry Henssler of The Necros . Both Bobby and Barry began selling their sleeves in the late 1980s. The alternate sleeves were never folded, glued, or issued with vinyl. Some collectors have since replaced their regular sleeves with the alternate sleeve. The regular pressing of the EP, with the individual band member photos on back, was released in August 1979, arriving from the west coast in 20 boxes of 100 copies each. About 1 copy per box (roughly 20 in all) had A-side center labels on both sides.
