eBay Insanity - Music Talk Edition

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Roadrunner Records CD release of Metallica's "Kill 'em All". Currently over $800. Yet another CD to keep in mind next time I hit the used record store.

Anybody ever get lucky enough to have a CD worth this much?

I sold Kenney Chesney's first album which was released on an indie label for around $100 or so. It has since been rereleased by his current label.

At the height of their popularity, I sold the Australian single of Rocket by Smashing Pumpkins for close to $100. It's still pretty rare today. Found it at a random Tower records for $7.99.

the Leathur Records release of Motley Crue's "Too Fast For Love" catches a lot of cash as well

I remember selling my MFSL Ultradisk of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" about five years ago for $250.00.

I think I got $50 for White Zombie's "Make/Let Them Die Slowly" from Caroline Records. I actually found 2 copies last year.

Ditto that. I picked up a ton of pawn shop goodies that sold for $100 on Ebay. Easy way to turn $1.00 into $100. I raided every pawn shop in the Atlanta area back in '99. I'm not sure it would be worth going to them today.
