    They talked about a buyer buying a copy of a 7" at about 10 times its value, and presumed it was a person who knew nothing about record prices buying something for their partner, without researching the prices of other copies in a similar condition. That's the only kind of scenario I can really see this guy selling anything. And for that reason, they called it out as being a scam situation.

    Very sad. Maybe the seller is mentally ill, who knows. He is certainly on a weird trip of some kind.

      I listened to it as well. What a hoot. I like his line about a very common Genesis single, that you could get for 50p but can buy from him for £85, which says,' Original white paper sleeve has some extremely minor defects, a tiny bit creased'. I think I'd like a new white paper sleeve if I were going to pay £498.50 over the usual price.

        that's the crazy thing - were they common records but absolutely pristine you could almost understand it (like the $3000 sealed "What's Going On?" and so on in the Discogs top sales chart) - but his "Mint" records still have damage listed...

          I think my sig probably comes from that nutter.

            Should change his discogs name to THE_MOST_EXPENSIVE_COPY_WITH_SLIGHT_DAMAGE_BUT_STI LL_LISTED_AS_NM or just lay off the glue for a bit.

                Unfortunately, record collecting does seem to produce it's share of whack jobs.
