Ebay Madness: Schoolboy Crush – Electric Playground (1989) for $205.05

Posted: May 1, 2006 in Ebay Madness

Schoolboy Crush auction

I have this CD! I got mine for $55 when the seller listed it incorrectly.

This album is OK. It’s average late ’80s Hard Rock. Worth $200+? IMO, no.

The band just got together and released a new album in 2005 on SunCity Records (Australia).

Looks like I could make a profit!

    There was an old movie poster that I wanted a movie specific movie poster off ebay years ago. Three times I get outbid on it because I was not going to go over $25.00. Then one day I accidently typed in the wrong name and there was the poster under the same wrong listing. I was the only bidder and I got it and another poster of equal value both for $15.00 because of the wrong listing.

  2. $55 is also too much, or were you that desperate ;) We’re just too freakish, we collectors.

    BTW: I’m discussing a related issue over on my site.

  3. Metal Mark – I used to snag a ton of CDs due to a misspelling in the auction title.

    Shenker instead of Schenker
    ACDC instead of AC/DC
    Judas Preist instead of Judas Priest

    People have caught on to that trick.

    Vohlker – I agree, $55 is too much for a single CD but I was drawn by the hype. Unfortunately, the CD doesn’t live up to the hype.

    I read your new article, very good and very true. I was also going to write a little about the insanity of pricing.
