First Bonus!

Out of some extreme kindness, the Shifters have tossed down ten copies of their new 10" record "In It" to help out the Big Ska Gamble cause. Not only will you get the standard Big Ska Gamble package, but you'll get one of these handsome 10" records too. Seven of these packages will be priced at $45 offering the normal black vinyl 10", but 3 are priced at $50 for the limited edition marble blue 10" record, and one has already sold! If you feel the need to adjust your donation, now is the time! I have a feeling these are going to go fast!

      I'm curious, I've done the $77 pledge, how would I also be able to get the reward of the 10" blue record of the $50 pledge?
