$14,000 is a little less than I just spent on my new car... i cant imagine dropping that much on a record. not knocking it by any means because i know if i had the money i would. Misfits collectors are in a league all of their own.

this is somewhat bothersome because these "test presses" aren't real test presses. Knife or Death Records sent these out with pre-orders for this split a couple years back and EVERYONE who pre-ordered got a black record marked "test press" with a special cover. It was figured out when there was a post on the B9 board and a shitload of people who ordered were all "FUCK YES I GOT A TEST PRESS!" (admittedly I was one of these people) I think KOD did this as a joke to make fun of the kids who go apeshit over test press vinyl.

Granted, these are most likely OOP now and it still is cool to have since it came with a limited cover. also the odds of most folks remembering about this are slim now since B9's search functions don't go back that far, you can't even find the thread over there. Still... who knows.

I didn't even know Fairweather was big enough to warrant their clear LP go for over $30, for a starting bid!

anyone can put any record up and throw out a random opening bid.

Oh I know, just a bit surprising to me that this person thinks anyone might bid on that with that opening bid. just something I don't understand.

Awesome!!! I just scored this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=260212909106&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=016

And was bummed because there was another one up and I thought I might have over paid. Here's the other one:

The best part is the guy in the second auction was like, "this sold out in a day or two". It took fucking weeks for the yellow to sell out. No one bought that fucking record. I wasn't going to get it but I realized it's probably going to be their only release so I should jump on it.

EBAY, you so crazy!

i asked this guy why he had marble blue /200 in the description but a trans blue in the pic. he said it was a typo.

someone wasn't paying much attention bidding on this.

hah. I wasn't sure what you were talking about so I checked it out. Jesus.

Reconstruction Site has been OOP for a couple of years, I think. I'm not sure because I was on top of that one when it came out...

I still thought it was quite odd that a Weakerthans album would go for so much. I saw a bin of about 3 or 4 maybe 2 years ago for $10 before I really knew who they were. It's a great album, but I'd never pay $50+ for it, or even the same amount for an album I love like Rival Schools United By Fate.
