Vinyl Records Top 5 eBay Sales Week Ending 07/16/2011

There is no Top 5 for this week. I refuse to sift through turds to come up with the ingredients for a good meal. No one wants to eat from a dung heap or cook from it. This ain't sports collecting. Aside from my admitted bias that the average record collector has a few dozen more IQ points than the average sports collector, we play our artifacts, not encase them in plastic. So by the very reality that the items we purchase will most likely be degraded by our use and human frailty before we pass them on, we are forced to become a more savvy and knowing bunch.

So when the top of the spectrum is filled with records that have the same handful of bidders jumping the price from tens or hundreds of dollars to around $10,000.00 dollars, I'm going to figure I know what's going on, and this tactic hasn't yet worked for the red label Pressley 45 so it ain't going to work for a handful of Northern European death metal records.

This is only the second week in four plus years that does not have a Top 5 on this blog.

More on this week's Top 5 on Vinyl Record Talk, Tuesday 8:00PM Eastern / 5:00PM Pacific on Radio Dentata.
