Even though there were 5,000 of these box sets pressed, this set is one of the harder Killers vinyl releases to get your hands on. Especially for a decent price. Most people selling this want outrageous prices for it, close to $500 outrageous. To be honest I don’t know or remember how much this box set originally sold for, but it probably was under $100, maybe even as low as $50. Now on to some more details about this nicely done box set.

As said above there were 5,000 copies pressed, with each being individually numbered with a silver foil stop on the bottom of the box. The set comes with a clear sticker on the front of the lid, basically a promo/hype sticker stating what is inside the box. The lid slides on and off, it is not attached to the box by a hinge. There are 11 7″s in the box, one for each of the 11 songs on the album. The album version is on the a-side of each 7″, with a b-side appropriately on the b-side. Some of these b-sides are exclusive to this box set, at least they were when it was first released. Many of them have subsequently been released on Sawdust, The Killers b-sides and rarities album.

All the records are pressed on black vinyl and come in their own jackets. All the records have pretty much the same label on the b-side, the only difference is the track listing for the respective 7″. The label on the a-side is the same as the artwork on the jacket for each 7″. For those interested here is a list of the b-sides included in this set in order of their appearance, so the first song appears as the b-side for the “Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine” 7″ and so on down the line.
