    Really? For a 2 song promo tape? Whichever one of you put in that max bid, you are RETARDED.

    But why put in such a high bid, so you wouldn’t have to wait at the end of the auction to see what happened? It is kinda like one of those situations where you threw up a crazy bid, thinking it’d never get that high and someone called your bluff. But I guess if you put in a bid of $285, you obviously felt the tape was worth that much.

    But for the final price, hey, look at it this way….$135 per song. STEAL!! :twisted:

    yes and no. i put in a high bid because if someone did eclipse it, they’d have to pony up big for it. meaning, pay more than what i think it’s worth. it’s the only way i can justify someone else having it.

    realistically, the tape should be valued around $150-$200, so i got screwed a little. but i make enough money to afford these little gems, so i deal.

    plus, routinely, i find rarities for pennies on the dollar:

    2X teitbite promo 7"s: one for $13, one for $8
    1979 mixes French promo: $9
    Daughter relfex magazine w/ 7" flexi: $15

    It’s expensive-
    I’m not saying it’s overpriced or overpayed.

    If this is genuine-
    It’s a good deal I guess-
    I’ve never seen one before-

    So-
    If it’s legit-
    Good deal, but still-
    Expensive-

    For this amount of cash-
    You’d secured yourself on early demo tape I guess ;)
    Still- nice one ;)

    I can agree its a lot of money, but I remember when the one sold for $700, and even recently one sold for $103.50. Manilla sold his on this message board for $200-300. All of which were the second disc. I tend to wonder what happened to the first disc and how much harder it would be to find just one to complete the set. I figure if you can get one of the disc for under $100, I would feel good about it. The only problem is if you get the second disc then you got 3 other people that I know of that is searching for the first disc….. But anyways somebody paid $600 for this and I would much rather have the Promo CDR’s.

    And I was send the same pic of the cd too, just to clarify that at least it was a genuine Reprise promo. And it turned out to be one, although the pic is very blurry… But it looked OK to me. Then I put a bid on it, the first and my only bid on this auction with a rather high maximum amount to protect it, Somebody else however, showed some pricey interest later on during the auction… I wonder who! Would it be Pit Boss himself maybe? :wink:

    Not my lucky day maybe, but in Euro it’s not that expensive anyway, thanks to the rather good conversion rate these days. So I’m still very happy with it! I won’t start collecting all of them "Asian shop- or homemades" of course, but just to have this colorful one in my collection for reference is kinda cool I think.

    Bye bye "homemade Japanese promo". I just got a full refund from the seller, as he said it was not genuine enough to his standards. And he might be right, after all. Or maybe the other bidder is sniping it behind my back! :lol:

    Anyway, he will look for compensation, and he already came with a few options, which I turned down. 1 of them might be the Asian pressing of If All Goes Wrong, but I don’t think so. Asked about it anyway. At least this was a nice little collecting adventure again. 8)

    It is $1025 now, but the problem I have with an auction like this is all the bidders with 0 feedback and/or newly created ebay users. I hate it when something rare pops up, and all these deadbeat losers crawl out of the woodwork to bid on stuff they have no intention of paying for. The seller could maintain credibility by deleting all bids from those with zero feedback. That is how the price got driven up in the first place, was a bidding war between someone with 600+ feedback and someone with 0. Nice.

    I think it’s a bullshit auction. Look at this bidding pattern, and especially when that person with 1 feedback only retracted his last bid. I’m quite sure it’s a set up, to make that 3***d person pay his max bid. When this bidding war had not happened, the price would have been US$ 2,200. Which is around the price that I think is fair, somehow.

    that’s probably true, because h***i probably wasn’t going to pay and they wanted to make the other person cough up the $10,000. this seller should have never let the 0 feedback idiots bid in the first place though and who knows? they might still not get paid. there aren’t too many bids on this item from any established ebayers.

    im not sure which auction you were referring to

    $150 for the siamee singles set?

    overpriced? yes. you can probably find one for like $40 if you’re patient. that auction shot up to $150 suspiciously quickly.

    $150 for the "massive collection" probably a little high. but not a bad pickup. the cassette is just the "drown" bootleg. [url:18jbhgss]http://www.spfreaks.com/default.aspx?page=COLLINDEX&cat=15[/url:18jbhgss]

    I’m wondering what is the most expensive SP cassette that anyone has seen?

    I don’t think it could be more than this one:

    The Death of a Dictionary is the debut album by alternative rock band Public Affection, who subsequently changed their name to \"Live\" and released seven more studio albums. It was released in 1989, while the band members were still in high school, via the band’s own label, Action Front Records. Just 2,000 copies of the album were made, all on cassette, and it is long out of print. The track \"Good Pain\" was eventually reworked for inclusion on the first Live EP, Four Songs, and their debut album Mental Jewelry. The album has a sound quite different to anything the band would later release as Live. Aside from \"Good Pain\", the remainder of the songs are still only officially available on this cassette, although the album is widely available on the internet via illegal download. Between 2005 and 2007 the average eBay selling price for the official cassette was $593.00.[/quote:1ap2yesb] :shock:

  • #34302

    I disagree. I’m sure people would pay more for other cassettes that are possibly even harder to find.

    I mean, this is Live. Not the biggest band in the world. And there are 2000 copies of this cassette.

    This cassette alone, is worth triple that price. Easily! It contains the Smashing Pumpkins song I Fall in a recording of December 1987. I heard rumours that even Billy Corgan himself wants it back, badly.

    The start price should have been on 1% of that amount, and the seller, having his lucky day, could end up getting 5% of that amount. That’s what I paid for my copy also. So yeah, it is waaaaaaaaaaaay overpriced.

    Yeah, I agree. That CD is super duper extremely rare, so any serious collector should pay that amount, what the seller is asking as a Buy It Now price, without any second thoughts. 8 dollar for shipment is slightly overcharged though. Maybe he is asking a few dollars extra for that long text he wrote on eBay, to promote the Smashing Pumpkins… On the other hand, I might have seen that text before… :lol:
