Over-pricing

The item you linked to is one example of over-pricing in today's marketplace. The reality is that many of those Living Stereo and Living Presence LPs have been reissued in 180g or 200g.

The example you linked to was reissued in 200g vinyl by two different companies, one a remastered pressing and an SACD of the remastered music. Now who in their right mind would pay almost twice as much as those reissues for an eyeballed VG/EX pressing, especially when there is so much variability in grading by Ebay sellers.

Ebay sellers of used vinyl are just re-upping the same records at the same old prices without adjusting to the current market. In this case, there are even other Ebay sellers listing the reissues at half the price asked for this used LP.

I have bought on Ebay over the years. Luckily, I've never been seriously unhappy with an Ebay transaction. But maybe that's because I shop around for what I want. I think many classical music buyers do so as well.
