    Listed in Goldmine Collectible Albums 1996 for $800 NM. It usually goes for at least $100-300 in NM- to VG++ condition (cover and vinyl). I have a VG+ and a NM cover with promo sticker. I love this "mispressed" alt mix of "Wild Horses" better than the authorized version.

    I found mine for $10 because I knew what I was looking for. Many dealers have never even heard of it. Check it every time you see a copy...

    "Shelly 11-18-1971" in the dead wax, on sides 3 & 4 (doesn't count if only on sides 1 & 2!)

    This is the track as heard from the "Gimme Shelter " doc...never officially released on any album. Love seeing the boys (and Mick Taylor) listening to this outtake)...Jagger sipping his favorite whiskey from the bottle and all grooving to the music. Best version ever IMHO.

    MOBY GRAPE, 1ST PRESSING. 1967 two eye Columbia. With Poster.

    Mine is still in the shrink. With Poster.

    Goes for anywhere from a few hundred to over $1000, depending on the value your seller places on it.

    Mega rare in NM shape, and a damn great album too!

    I found one of these. I thought that it had to be some sort of bootleg when I picked it up since it is so rare, but it turned out to be the real thing.

    Yes indeed, and it's a very good pressing too. I haven't done an A-B comparison but it definitely sounds clearer than I remember.

    I sold my most valuable LP recently. It was Tom Petty Wildflowers. Sold it for $ 455. Bought for probably $ 10.

    What I have still that is valuable.

    Kiss s/t very first pressing w/o Kissin' Time.
    I have all Kiss first pressings thru Revenge as well.

    The first Bowie vinyl box from a few years ago is now a 300% markup on the price I paid....

    For me it's easily this one:

    The Beatles - Abbey Road

    Abbey Road PPCS-7088 - Parlophone export pressing. Mine is the even scarcer Decca contract press.

    Regret selling my Simply Vinyl version because back then I thought one copy was enough:hurl:

    I see the value of the Sgt. Pepper 2014 mono vinyl is growing. I was lucky when I bought it online for 30 bucks a year ago.

    I've got a mint copy of Safe As Milk with all the inserts. That it's stereo probably deducts a little value, but it's definitely one of my prizes.

    I've got that one + Holy Wood on record. Wish I had some of the earlier ones.

    Posts without prices aren't nearly as interesting as the alternative...

    That is one of Eric's CDs on my want list, I also need A Country Dream. I have the other Vanguard era CDs. I don't know when these all went out of print.

    I have that and the Mary Hopkins LP in mono. There was some kind of warehouse find in the early 90s and these LPs circulated and sold in Goldmine magazine at the time.

    Cheepnik "Digs" "beat" "poetry"

    Based on what I've actually gotten for an LP (as opposed to what I might get someday if I'm lucky), the winner is the NM first pressing of Nirvana's Bleach (with poster) that I sold a few years ago. IIRC, the winning bid was around $440.
