That’s even better!
I was out of work for 16 of 24 months during 2011-12 and sold lots of records on the forum and a few on EBay. I sold a 3rd state Butcher Cover that was an absolute beautiful peel job. I sort of regret it, I guess. I stay away from collectibles. I needed to pay the bills and would rather have money in the bank than stare at an album cover.
What’s your Discogs seller handle Gavinyl?
I've sold a lot of valuable pressings and it was mostly due to the fact that I'd rather not have something worth huge sums just sitting on my shelf. My regret is that I sold some too soon, but hindsight is 20/20. I got a hefty price for some like Hank Mobley 1568 on Blue Note, but it's going for like $2K more than what I sold it for.
Some genres just aren't going to sell here. I have a lot of original golden era hip hop records from the 90s that goes for a lot of money as they are all out of print and most will never be reissued. Those wouldn't sell here, but Japanese buyers on eBay can't get enough.
Same goes for a lot of West African music. Outside of maybe Fela Kuti, this forum isn't really the place to sell that kind of stuff. Most people here aren't looking for things like original Sikiru Ayinde Barrister records to say the least.
