How much is too much for a near mint debut album original pressing?

I'm looking to get one but I wanna know if I'm being ripped off.

I bought one last week, mint I would say, for $51. They seem higher on eBay at the moment. As for a top end I am not sure what the collector experts here would say.

I landed TCATS last night finally. I think I got a good deal on a mint copy for $87.

$51 is on the low end of what I'm seeing. According to the second post it should be around 20 and nothing I've come across is near that in price...


I paid $99 excl. postage for my TCATS so that sounds pretty good.

Right now is a horrible time to try and buy rare Foo vinyl...or anything rare from the band. I saw one of Daves DG335 Gibsons on ebay for $8,000 the other day. Ugh.
For comparison, I got a sealed copy (that I opened cause I listen to my vinyl! )of TINLTL for $45 about 6 months ago. I got a mint TCATS for $52 about 3 months ago. The prices will probably only keep going up for awhile because of the renewed interest in the band.

It was at least 6 months ago that I got TCATS so I obviously just got a bad deal.

Yep - add 25 to 50% to all prices right now for anything worth real money. The better this album does the longer that will run unfortunately, and the higher the chance the median prices wont settle back to the same levels - ie they will possibly end up higher as well.

Holy CRAP! 90 and climbing. The sad part is someone will buy it for that and then it will be back down to 40-50 in a few months.

There is an opened 1x1 that was just posted on ebay this morning. Might keep an eye on that one.

A few weeks ago I snagged IYH for $50....check this one, ending in 30 mins...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

$122. Yikes!! Glad I pounced on mine. Prices have gone crazy...lol.

Wow the prices on eBay are getting absolutely crazy...http://cgi.ebay.com/Dave-Grohl-FOO-F...item1c1b33e68a

I think I'm going to wait until this wave of ridiculousness goes away to even start trying to get the vinyl I need!

Holy Crap! That is insane! I would rather have one that is opened anyways, since I only play vinyl in the house. But damn, not much of an investment on a sealed copy IMO. I doubt the value settles in that high over time.

Jesus! I bought mine a few years ago and the auction didn't mention it was sealed so I got a bargain for 10. Quite tempted to list it...

Absolutely true - no investment there at all. Pressed in very high numbers by comparison to all the later LPs. Even Sealed worth $60 - 75 US. Highly amusing indeed.

And this was pretty funny today too Thats perhaps three times its max value - still your listing is even more out there.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=120715968012

Dont be buying vinyl at the moment folks it wont be a good deal unless its a buy now.

That said I did just FINALLY secure my missing EU All My Life 7 inch single. Bit more than I wanted to pay ($20 AU) but I haven't seen one listed so Im glad to finally have it.

Another IYH up, and ends in 2 days. Already at $115. I know it is rare, but geez. While mine is not perfect, I am glad I secured an opened copy of this. I love spinning the acoustic discs.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Then there is this TINLTL... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT Reserve price, and an inflated BIN. Lame.

Another one just sold...http://cgi.ebay.com/Foo-Fighters-The...item2c5c69fc29

Did the sale of this come up here? I forget. Worth another mention at any rate... http://cgi.ebay.com/Dave-Grohl-FOO-F...item1c1b33e68a
