Anyone knowledgeable about the subject wouldn't pay you or anyone else $45-50 for a reel of 456 no matter what its supposed provenance. As the long-time poster child for sticky shed -- I've even seen the Quantegy variety fingered for this -- 456 is firmly in the no-buy-at-any-price category for some of us.
I'm aware of that. But it's really beside the point. Just like some people will not buy Maxell, or used, or whatever the case may be. There's always something out there that someone will never touch. But you missed my bigger point. There are plenty of people who will, as evidenced by the fact that I continually see some folks spending MORE for the same tapes. That's the issue I want to focus on, not whether or not you personally have an aversion to brand X tape.
I've seen what you're talking about and chalk it up to sheer happenstance. Ebay is not known for its logic. Never has been. I've seen a 2-track Kind of Blue, which has just 3 of the original 5 tracks, go for $2100. On the other hand, I just bought an Otari MX5050 transport, the most recent version, for $175 and it turned out to be brand new. That's the breaks of the game. No point complaining about it or trying to figure it out.
