THE OFFICIAL EBAY CRAZINESS THREAD

Recommended Posts

There are threads all over the internet now about dudes listing records on Discogs for insane prices. No one is sure why they are doing it. Do they really have these records? Why would anyone buy these records at these prices? We may never know what the motivation is. It's like the Easter Island of vinyl.

 

Bermuda Vinyl 

 

the truth is out there.

^^ She used to be a regular VCer waaaaaay back in the day. Disappeared off the radar and then resurfaced as a major flipper. She's been doing it for years now.

It's so weird though. She flips most stuff for ridiculous prices, but then a while back I bought Eudora off her, brand new sealed for $10 ppd, and it came with a bent corner so we refunded me my $5 shipping.

Go read her negative feedback. Hilarious. Here's a gem:
 

 
NOT SEALED. I specialize in sealed vinyl and brand new unused means BRAND NEW Buyer:

Description clearly states we sell new items opened to verify vinyl color

Yeah, I bought the UO exclusive of M83 Hurry Up, We're Dreaming from her for like 20 bucks. It had a bent corner as well.

$20 is still pretty steep considering it's a Matchbox 20 album.

The first time I saw someone post this record was on a FB group a while back and it was a link to an Ebay auction and I think it was like $50. I was like that seems steep for a Matchbox 20 record. Checked Discogs and:

  • Lowest: $100.00
  • Median: $187.50
  • Highest: $300.00

Only bought one thing from here over the years, and it was a sealed Bayside Covers (Blue). Was 8ppd, which I thought was reasonable. But for the most part, avoided her.

One of those deeply obscure releases that a handful of people will pay a lot for:

Though not five figures it seems.

Okay, it's not a record, but I feel like it's worth mentioning for an eBay craziness thread.

Ethan from H3H3Productions put his hat on eBay and it's up to $70 million.

 

It was at $20m last time I saw it. I highly doubt the winner pays, however high it gets.
