Default Medium Rare on eBay

Just won the first posting of Medium Rare vinyl on eBay. Says in stock. Guess I will see if it actually ships before the 16th.

This is good for me since I do not think any store in my area will have this release. So, keep your eyes open on eBay if you are looking for this record.

Yeah kind of curious to what you paid for it. I really don't want to get totally screwed on the price. I would normally just go out for RSD and get it but my friend decided it would be a good day to get married. So no record store for me that day!

This is what I would have paid if I managed to secure a copy from an out of state store. I had been hoping to get one from www.strictlydiscs.com. I really wish my city had a store that had an active participation in RSD. Instead the only store that is a "member" is a chain comic store that has a handful of records...sigh.

I didn't think stores were allowed to sell RSD things before the day - no holds or presales?

WOW! Great, I either got took or I got a HELL of a deal!

I never saw this one in my saved FF LP search, cuz he posted it in the entertainment memorabilia section. *shrug*

Yeah I really like how the description makes it sound like he is the one doing you a favor. Even though he's charging (what I believe) to be an excessive mark up!

Yeah, and he was in such a hurry to get his post up that he spelled "record" "RECROD". DOH.

Hopefully noone will buy it at that price. I mean, do we even know if this LP has a low production number? I have not seen anything about it being limited to a few thousand. This could not be as rare as one would think, maybe?

There are a couple new listings for Medium Rare on eBay. These are not buy it now and have bidders. Be interesting to watch what they go for.

Absolutely exactly the words I read - although my translation has the word "an asshole" where you thave the word "nice".

In the RSD official listing the RH column has the pressing number. On a few of them, including the Foos release, the number is noticably absent. I have no idea whether to read that as there will be more than the 2-3000 on all the other releases, or less. If anyone does know they should let the rest of us in on the secret

E-bay is full of recordstoreday flippers at the moment. These prices are absurd!

I ordered my copy of the LP the normal way at a store, for a normal price.

At the risk of being contraversial, it's annoying. The whole point is to celebrate independant record stores, and to get people through the doors, spending money in there. Not to buy the special stuff at stupidly inflated prices before it's supposed to be available on ebay /rantover

Having said that, if you've got a copy, then cool you know.

I agree with you on the purpose of RSD. I cannot speak for the others who are buying this LP or other RSD releases on eBay, but for myself I live in a city with 2 stores that participate, both on the small side. I went in and talked to the guys in one about RSD. Of course they have no way of knowing what they are getting, and I cannot be at the store that morning. So I scooped up an eBay copy at store price and should have it by tomorrow.

This is not to say that each auction up right now is a good thing though. Just saying, each person buying one may not be able to get one the normal way.

No sooner does this one sell, the same seller posts another at the same price.
