Amazon has a really great deal on the Star Wars Ultimate Vinyl Collection. Episodes 1-6 for $86.33. It's out of stock, it you can still place an order.

Snagged the translucent yellow/white splatter variant Saturday morning at 5am when I was woken up by the early access email!

Not a genius, but assuming you're asking about sound degradation, if you have a properly set up turntable, replace your cartridge/stylus when worn, and take care of your records, the sound quality shouldn't noticeably diminish for well over 100 plays, probably hundreds. But if some of these things are not done properly, like setting with the wrong tracking force or using a worn stylus, you can damage the records quickly within less than a dozen plays and likely much sooner.

I keep all my records in resealable poly bags, it definitely helps keeping the jacket in good condition and avoiding dust.

I'[m pretty sure I read whenever the Library of Congress adds music to the National Recording Registry, they use vinyl. Because the shelf life is so much longer than CDs or the life of a hard drive. Treat your records right and your grandkids can enjoy them.

What do you clean with?
I know you weren't asking me, but personally I just use a standard cleaning brush with no fluid, while the record's spinning I start lightly at the middle and slowly move out. I do that before every play and it keeps em clean enough, esp if you don't need to clean a super dirty old record.
