"Unofficial" Vinyl Releases - Thoughts on Quality

Hello - relatively new vinyl collector trying to build my collection.  I have the official reissues of Ten, Vs, Vitalogy, No Code, and Yield, along with an original ('96) No Code vinyl and most of the Xmas singles.  I also have a copies of Riot Act and Backspacer that I got from 10C that I use mainly as a framed pics until I got my player.

So that leaves Binaural, Lost Dogs, Avocado and (the easily found) Lightning Bolt.  

When I look on discogs.com I see lots of "Unofficial" releases for the ones I need to complete my collection, [link removed]  I was curious as to the quality of these releases - are the basically just crappy copies or are some better than others?  I really am dying for Lost Dogs and Avocado on vinyl more than anything and am tempted by the lower prices.

Thoughts on these types of releases?  Thanks!

    They will be sourced from the CD, so there's that.

    Well, they definitely have an illegal quality to them.

    We know reissues are happening soon, I'd just chill until 10c announces them and they go up at Amazon or yr local.
