    Should I order this Mega-Rare, Very Cool Misfits: Walk Among Us picture disc from Yankeeland for $420 + shipping?

    Or maybe buy a stock copy for £20.75? Nah, that's just boring.

    The Hank Thompson EP is a German pressing from an unknown year. Now that I put it on Discogs, people are asking between 40$ and 60 € for it. I don't know the real value but that seems much.

    Did I provoke these prices by adding the records to the database? Do people even realise that the reason Discogs has few copies for sale may just be that the release has only been there for a short time?
    Hank Thompson: 0 have 1 Wants. What makes 3 people think they'll get over £30 for it?
    A year ago I offered someone £8 for a £9 record (he had the make an offer option and the record's never sold for more than £7) He declined the offer and he still has the record. Yes, why not hold it for a few years in the hope of eeking that extra £1 out of it. Thing is £8 would have bought him more last year than £9 will this year if he sells it. One person wants Hank Thompson, why not just sell it to them for a fiver? That's probably more than it's worth. Don't get me wrong, I like Hank and I've got his Hank Part 1 EP sat right in front of me.

    I did it again, 50p!



    According to this, it's considered a valuable raer in the UK. Sweet!

    Having said that the B-side has something and is credited to jazz drummer Egil Johansen. So maybe it's a wellknown secret and i have egg on my face. Or not.

    So, I just put it up for 5€ to shock the EZ flapper market. The spine split is probably a dealbreaker though :-)
    It'll be fun to see if the two fools selling at 75€ react.

    Not a bad price for this sought-after EZ Flapper grail. The reason there are no wants is that EZ Flapper collectros shun the internet and communicate by telegram.
    Play the killer cut Baby Face and set the strobe light off and you'll get the idea.

    Budget label pressing of a long-forgotten musical with no-one on the site wanting it and it never having sold before? I can't hit that purchase button fast enough!!!

    Could be the two listings are from people suffering from the common, recent delusion that because 'vinyl's back', any old shite will sell...

    Yeah, that's my take as well. I may put it up for 5€ just to see what happens...

    I reckon its a case of the first seller seeing there are no copies for sale, putting their one up at a high price to see if anyone will bite.

    Second seller looks the record up, sees it is for sale for a high price, thinks that is what it is actually worth and prices their copy a little lower.

    In reality nobody wants it and they will both sit there gathering online dust for ever.

    started a topic Am I missing something?

    Am I missing something?

    I found this record in a box I bought off a Facebook ad, and now I'm puzzled?

    https://www.discogs.com/Raymond-Aske...elease/8925386

    Two copies for sale around 75€, zero wants. Am I missing something or is this just random discogs craziness by the Dane and Australian who put it up for sale?
