Real rarities on ebay

Postby Stoneage Dinosaurs » Thu Jul 20, 2006 16:26

There's a couple of proper rarities on e-bay at the moment. This for example, currently at £21. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Cardiacs-12-TOO-M ... dZViewItem

I paid about a fiver for it in the Notting Hill Record & Tape exchange about 10 years ago.

That said, it is one of the rarest of the 12" EPs to find.

Agreed.
Susannah's 12" gives it a run for its money though

It'll be rarer if he buys it all and burns most of it. Then he'll come back in ten years time and sell for SUPERBUCKS!

Maybe he has indeed been taken over by the very devil that Carli keeps telling her hubby about...? :shock:

I use this sometimes http://www.justsnipe.com/ everyone does it so you have to keep up with the nasties. Don't give them any money though, you get 4 or 5 free goes a week which is enough for anyone and watch out for popups.
