Update, June 5: As I clearly stated, please do not write about ending the auction early. I will not do it. (The untold riches quip was a joke.) If you want to offer me X dollars, just bid that much and see where it gets you. I want every passionate KISS collector to have an equal chance of getting this rare item. Also, I do occasionally participate on media that is social using my real name, Garrison Spik (pronounced "speak.") And last, yes, I was the guy who lived in Japan in the 1990s and early 2000s, developed the first website about Japanese KISS collectibles, and wrote a kind detailed guide about KISS' LP and 7" releases in Japan. I'm truly flattered and honored that people remembered my contributions to the Japanese KISS collectibles universe. Thanks! And good luck if you decide to bid on the auction!
