Master Tape Copies

Does anyone here have any copies of master tapes or safety or production copies??? I have a few and wondered if anyone else was into them?
That's 2 track @15 ips .....

I wish. By the time I got into tape, the prices had long left the station of affordability.

I have a closet full of master tapes from projects I've been involved in over the years. Unfortunately they are all on a tape that sheds like a cat in summer. Periodically I've pulled one out, baked it gently and made a digital copy, though some of the tapes proved not even up to that. Mostly they're a decorative feature.

I did once hear a digital copy of Moody Blues 'Days of Future Passed' made from a master tape and it was absolutely incredible. Experiences like that really do make one wonder how the production process degrades things so incredibly badly!

I unfortunately got on the Tape bandwagon way too late. Enjoying the hidden gems that come my way though. But the pickings are slim and far from the cream of the crop.
 
Simple. I was selling them for good $$$ and wanted at least a high res copy. I also made tape copies as well. I still kept my favorites.
