Vinyl Records Top 5 eBay Sales Week Ending 08/20/2011

One of those weeks when classical LP's dominate the list - which is no fun for me since I don't know much about classical music. I do know that the Michelle Auclair in the #1 spot sold for $1k than the last time it appeared on the Top 5. The same box set shows up in the #3 spot at about half the price - one of the LPs in the set has light scratches which produce crackling. Goes to show that condition is everything.

The Charlie Parker 78 in the #2 spot got a nice price. It usually sells for about $30. However, this one is a promo that was signed by Parker.

In the past several weeks I've commented here about the vinyl collectible market as prices in the Top 5 reflected some constriction in prices for high dollar items, but with some signals that collectors were willing to spend money. The Auclair box set selling for $1k more than its last sale and the Charlie Parker 78 getting close to $6k shows that as far as vinyl is concerned the heart knows how to reach around a tight scrotum and grab the wallet.
