the current vinyl bubble presents a great opportunity to liquidate non-essential portions of your portfolio. i upgrade the majority of titles to a strong sell. 

All jokes aside, I've been thinking about selling off certain variants and replacing them with $12 standard black copies from Amazon, while pocketing $50+ per record. The bubble is insane.

I have done this with represses several times. I put stuff on auction generally so if the consumers drive the price up what am i to do? ;) On a shittier note, theres some vendor here in town who lists his crap real high on discogs and buys them with another account of his to drive up the market value. Wish i knew his profile but no clue. People like that are why the state of this hobby can be an ultimate bummer at times.

Yeah that's bogus. I just noticed that I have some variants that are like $50-100 on discogs, but black copies are cheap, so I thought about making a buck if I can. I still make money, and the band still sells another copy of their record. Mainly Hot Topic variants and shit, so that crowd can get fucked anyway.

This makes no sense. Why would you pay the Discogs' fees just to "drive up the market value"?? Then there's the risk of sitting on your new highly valued record for an undetermined amount of time until someone buys it. People like that are idiots.

I can't believe its been 11 years. Agreed about vinyl pricing. I've definitely bought less since prices have gone up but that has also helped me buy things I actually want instead of buying things I only kinda want
